Last year I made my friend Kim a basket cake with yarn skanes. When I gave her last years cake her husband said "Where is Henry's foot print?" (Henry is their cat) so I added his paw print to the top of the cake.
The cake was pumpkin spice covered with Cinnamon Cream Cheese Buttercream.
4 sticks unsalted butter, softened
1 8oz block of cream cheese, softened
1/2 tsp salt
2 lbs confetioners sugar
4 tbsp water, milk or cream
2 tbsp cinnamon
1. In stand mixer, cream the softened butter, cinnamon & salt
2. Add the cream cheese
3. Add water, milk or cream
4. Slowly add the confectioners sugar until well blended, about 3 minutes
Happy Birthday Kim!!
(sorry we will have to walk an extra mile or two after eating this rich cake)
