Baking for a first birthday party was a bit daunting! I wanted to make a cake that was organic and had little sugar for the birthday boy. I chose these products from the shop and it tasted amazing! I went to the local farmers market to pick up Lily’s fresh eggs (we sell them at the shop as well). They are from free range, hormone and antibiotic free chickens.
I added local blueberries as we have an abundant supply in Carpinteria and the birthday boy loves blueberries! I whipped up this cake in under 20 minutes (minus bake time). You could add any type of berry or even dark chocolate chips.
This is the perfect boxed cake because it’s completely organic and is moist and delicious! I used European Gourmet Bakery Organics Vanilla Cake Mix. The hints of vanilla were aromatic and exactly what you want in a cake. All you need to add are eggs, butter and milk and you’re set! If you’d like to make a dairy free cake you could also use alternatives ie.. a flax “egg”, butter alternative and nut milk of your choice or oat milk. The frosting I used was Simple Mills Organic Vanilla Frosting which is an amazing product because it only has 8 grams of sugar per serving and uses eight simple ingredients. The consistancy was just right and easy to work with.
Each box makes one 9 inch cake but we used three smaller 5 inch pans and made them thinner by pouring less batter into each.
