Hard Cake?....Nah!

I've been periodically talking about all the earrings I make. I have hundreds of beads, and a practically an unlimited supply of gadgets to take apart. What if you don't have any beads or gadgets you want to destroy? Fear not! Look no further than your boyfriend's, husband's, or even your own toolbox! Metal or rubber washers, nuts, wire, springs, resisters, etc. Anything goes, be creative, plus he'll probably never miss it :)

I found the easiest white cake recipe ever.

You can use different extracts instead of just vanilla to give it a different flavor. I added lemon zest to mine (about 1 1/2 t.) and it turned out very well. I also used soymilk instead of regular milk. This cake is extremely moist and I have even found that you don't even need frosting for it, just use a sprinkling of powdered sugar or sprinkle colored sugar on it before you put it in the oven. You could probably even add fruit either canned (there will be extra juice added which will make the batter thinner) or fresh, nuts, etc. Use your imagination.....even if it doesn't turn out the way you want, take it to work.....they'll eat it anyways (at least that's how it goes at my job) :)


  1. I love cake, but making it myself takes forever which is the only con. But other than that, its cheaper, and you can make it whatever flavor you want!

    If you coat it with a layer of simple syrup (water + sugar) after the cake is done baking, it helps to moisten the cake!

  2. Hey! I love the earrings, and thanks for the nice comment! :)
