And… Birthday Cake #4: Beatty’s Chocolate Cake with Whipped Cream Frosting

IMG_5615

This has inarguably been the summer of Ina Garten’s Beatty’s Chocolate Cake for us. Three out of our four birthday cakes were made using the recipe (herehere and this post), and L. would probably say he would’ve been happy had this been true for the fourth as well. It’s tasty, moist and very consistent.

After the sugar-palooza that was the last cake‘s frosting, my younger son asked for this, his 18th birthday cake, to be frosted with whipped cream. I simply beat together a pint of heavy cream, a couple ounces of confectioner’s sugar and a teaspoon of vanilla extract. Easy peasy!
