Jeri's Cake - White on White
The first time I was part of a Northrop family birthday celebration, I learned about white on white birthday cake. In the Callsen family, we always had yellow, or more often, marble cakes(you can’t even buy marble anymore!) In fact, my mother tried to make a white cake once. She used the entire egg, not just the whites, and it turned out yellow. She couldn’t figure out why you wouldn’t use the whole egg.
When Steve’s mom served a beautiful white cake with creamy buttercream frosting, I was hooked! Since then, no Northrop family birthday celebration is complete without this special cake.
A couple of years ago, Jeri gave me this beautiful white (of course) cake stand. For her birthday cake yesterday, I embellished the white on white cake with fresh mint leaves, raspberries and blackberries. I am not a baker, but I was very impressed with the way it turned out. And – it was absolutely delicious!
