Saturdate with Southern Plate: {Granny's Sheath Cake}

Well the day I have built up for a month is finally here. Please excuse me for one minute.

la la la laaaaa...

Happy birthday to me! Happy birthday to me! Happy birthday to me...eeeeeeeeeeeee. (holding it out for meaning) Happy birthday to meeeeeEEEEEE! (hitting a high note at the end)

This week, I made Granny's sheath cake recipe for my birthday cake. Yes, I know it sounds sad that I make my own birthday cake, but I started this last year and loved it. I love to cook, and my birthday cake gives me a great opportunity to make pick out just the recipe. This recipe is only in the cookbook and not on Southern Plate website.

Brandon and I ate a slice of this cake about an hour after I made it, and it was good. Then we had another piece several hours later and it was GREAT! If you are planning on making this cake for a function, I would definitely suggest that you make it the morning of or the night before the event. I guess the icing and the cake just need some time to get to know each other.
