But in times like these, perhaps there is nothing better to post about than a colourful sprinkles-filled (and topped) birthday cake. I used this recipe from Salt and Baker.
Also I must say that I love this strawberry frosting, which is so easy to make if you can find freeze dried strawberries. I first made it two years ago (also for a birthday cake). And this time reduced the icing sugar even further, mostly because I didn’t have enough (haha!). I used about 1 1/4 cups of unsalted butter, about 1 3/4 cups of icing sugar (possibly less – do note that the original recipe calls for 4 cups of icing sugar to 1 cup of butter ), 1 cup of freeze-dried strawberries, also quite a bit of salt as I really didn’t want it to be that sweet. And the kids still loved it!
Despite the unusual circumstances, the birthday boy said he had a great day anyway!
I also made burger buns for the first time, as the birthday boy loves cheeseburgers. I used this King Arthur Flour recipe and they turned out great!
