Most Sundays we spend at my parent's house, but yesterday we stayed home because Eleanor was feeling under the weather. Arick watched a baseball game and the boys ran in and out of the house... baby pool to cars to coloring to baby pool to helping me bake a cake. To bake the most delicious cake I've ever tasted. It's incredible how only three teaspoons of rosemary can infuse into a cake and create such a flowery, yet subtle, yet glorious taste.
I followed a recipe I found on taste of home.com
For the frosting I decided to make a fresh strawberry buttercream and it complimented it so nicely. The trouble with fresh strawberry buttercream is you wanna just eat it with a spoon.
1. 3.5 cups powdered sugar
2. 1 cup softened butter
3. 1 pound fresh strawberries
4. 2 teaspoons vanilla
To puree strawberries, remove stems, slice them and toss them in a blender or food processor. Mix all four ingredients together. I used a hand mixer. I ended up adding more powdered sugar because it wasn't thick enough. SO GOOD!
