In the midst of the World Series, I’ve had the chance to read about a couple of other things I think are pretty cool.
For starters, my mom made a giant one-inch poster with the names of her friends and the names and ages of their newborns on it.
It’s just amazing how the same names can pop up multiple times in a single day, and how that one-year-old poster can come up in the same day, on the same calendar, with the same name and age.
I’ve also read about people making their own birthday posters.
I know I’m a big fan of the homemade, one-sheet birthday posters I can make for myself or friends.
I also have a love for the little handmade postcards, which I love to share with friends.
But the one-page poster is one of the coolest and most creative ways to share a birthday with someone.
And it’s a great way to celebrate a special moment with someone new, as the picture says.
The problem with these handmade posters is that they usually don’t come with a birthday cake.
There are some companies that offer one-piece, cardboard or paper-covered posters.
But I don’t like the idea of having a cake or a cake with a picture of my friends and family on it, or a card or greeting card.
The birthday poster is a way to get your friends and loved ones to be excited for the upcoming birthday.
So, I was looking to make my own one-sided birthday poster with a little cake.
Here’s how to make it.
Ingredients: 1 pound cake flour 1 teaspoon baking soda 1/4 teaspoon salt 1/2 cup milk 1 egg white 1 cup brown sugar 1 teaspoon cinnamon 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg 1/3 cup sugar 1/6 cup vegetable oil for greasing pan 1/16 teaspoon baking powder 1/1 teaspoon baking salt 2 tablespoons melted butter for greased pan 1 cup white cake flour For the filling: 1/10 cup melted butter, softened to room temperature 2 cups brown sugar 2 cups granulated sugar 1 1/7 cups powdered sugar For the cake: 1 cup milk 2 tablespoons brown sugar 3 tablespoons butter, room temperature, plus more for greassing the pan 1 egg, beaten 1 teaspoon vanilla extract For the decorations: 1 egg yolk, beaten 2 cups powdered cake sugar 3 teaspoons cinnamon 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg Instructions: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Combine the flour, baking soda, salt, and baking powder in a small bowl and set aside.
In a large bowl, whisk together the milk, egg, brown sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg until well combined.
Add the sugar, oil, butter, egg white, brown, and sugar, and whisk to combine.
In another large bowl whisk together flour, milk, and egg mixture until well blended.
Fold in the melted butter and vanilla.
In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, combine the flour mixture and the egg mixture, until well mixed.
Add in the white cake mix and beat until just combined.
The batter should be thick enough to coat a 9-inch cake pan or two 9-by-13-inch baking sheets.
Place the cake batter into the prepared baking sheet lined with parchment.
Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
Cool slightly on a wire rack before removing from pan and letting cool.
To decorate the cake, line a 9 by 13-inch pan with parchment and grease it with nonstick cooking spray.
Sprinkle the powdered sugar and cinnamon over the cake.
Top with the whipped cream, if desired.
To assemble, take the cake out of the pan and place it in the greased baking pan.
Place a paper cupcake ring on top and top with a piece of white cake.
Bake until a fork comes out with a small indentation, about 45 to 50 minutes.
Remove the cake from the greasing and paper cupcakes and sprinkle with powdered sugar.
Serve immediately with whipped cream.
