Special After School Snack: Deep Butter Cake

Shelley has had a tough week which included a biology test, so I cooked her a special snack: Deep Butter Cake from Helfer's Bakery.   Here is the recipe. One of my blog friends posted this a while back, and I can't remember who. If you're the guilty party, please comment!  :D






One of my favorite Christmas presents from my best friend, Susan.




The secret to the cake is butter flavoring.  It's worth the search for it!  :D  Shelley loved the cake, and she is a very picky eater.

Resources:
Tablecloth:  Anthropologie
China:  Harvest by Lenox
Square cake plate:  Zen platter from Williams-Sonoma
Vase:  MacKenzie-Childs Dandy small vase
Cake knife and server:  Gift

Until next time...

Blessings!
