Peppermint Mocha Cake - I made it NAKED :)

I was fully clothed while I made this cake  :)   The recipe comes from the blog Make It Naked.  I followed the recipe perfectly; only substituting cake flour for "normal" flour.

The one thing I learned from making this cake is that flouring/buttering the pans does not work for me.  I will be using parchment paper on the bottom of the cake pans from now on.  They look so innocent after they come out of the oven...
But coming out of the pan is a whole other matter...

I have also, yet again, justified the purchase of my kitchen aid mixer.

Making frosting is so easy!
And the good thing about frosting....?

It hides all of your cake baking mistakes!

 The bf and the bf's sister are loving the fact that I have been on a baking spree lately.
I knew that if I baked enough cakes and mini-cupcakes (coming in a future post), that we would finally get snow!
 All of the branches were covered with a frosty snow from the rain we had been getting.
