It’s Carla from CarlasCakes! Today, I want to start off with the basics. On Episode 1 of Carla in the Kitchen, I demonstrated how to bake, level, stack, fill and crumb coat a cake. You can watch the full episode on RogersTV Channel 22. Link will be posted online soon 🙂
I also demonstrated how to make my Delicious Easy Vanilla Cake Recipe, and Easy Vanilla Buttercream Recipe! CarlasCakes is the best online cake and cupcake shop in Ottawa, and our vanilla cake and cupcakes are the number one sellers in the area!
Here’s how to make The Best Vanilla Buttercream Recipe ever!
1 cup butter (soft)
3 cups icing sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1-2 tsp whipping cream
In your mixer, add your soft butter and mix. Add half of your sugar and mix on medium low for about 30 seconds.
Scrape the sides and add your vanilla extract and whipping cream. Mix until incorporated and add the remaining sugar.
Mix on medium high for 5-6 min until your buttercream is light and fluffy! You buttercream is now ready for use.
You can use this recipe to ice your cakes and cupcakes. You can add any colour you’d like by using gel food colouring.
If you are making a cake for a girl, try dying it a light pink. If you are making a cake for a boy, you can add some drops of blue to make it a light blue colour.
