An ‘Icing Friendly’ Cake Recipe…

There are thousands of cake recipes in the world but some types of cakes simply have the buoyancy, mass and support that is needed to support fillings and icing.

Here’s a traditional and fail-proof recipe for an Icing Friendly Cake…

Butter Cake

This is the classic recipe that is used to create tiered confections for wedding cakes.

Butter cake has a firm, moist texture that makes it perfect for tiered designs.

The almond extract is optional but if you are making a wedding cake it is a very traditional additive.

You could also add extra vanilla, rum flavoring, cognac or brandy, orange blossom water or rosewater instead of the almond flavoring if you prefer.

1 1/2 cups butter, room temperature
2 1/2 cups granulated sugar
5 eggs
1 teaspoon Pure Vanilla Extract
3/4 teaspoon Almond Flavoring (optional)
3 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup milk
