I did a little experimental baking for the girls’ birthday this year. We had dinner at my parents’ house and I made an Amaretto chocolate chip cake with a caramel filling and a rolled buttercream fondant icing.
I think that in all it turned out pretty good. I am so used to making cupcakes and a cake seemed like a lot more work. It was pretty sweet, although I think that is the point, and the caramel filling was a lot harder to keep inside the cake than I had planned, but it was pretty good.
For their slumber party there was a lot of baking going on. First we had iced sugar cookies and chocolate chip cookies.
Then I did a little simpler cake, the chocolate chip cake but just buttercream icing for the filling. My second attempt at the buttercream rolled fondant was a little better, and I am looking forward to some more practice.
The slumber party guests seemed to enjoy all the baked goods.
