Happy mother’s day

I wanted to make my mother in law a cake for mother’s day, but when I asked her what she wanted, she said anything would be fine. So Rob, never at a loss for a treat suggestion, asked me to make a white cake with vanilla frosting and M&Ms. So I tweaked a white cake mix, made a buttercream frosting and sprinkles it with mini m&Ms. I have no decorating skills. It is the best I could do.

Cake ingredients

  • 1 white cake mix
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/3 cup oil
  • 1 cup Greek yogurt
  • 1 instant white chocolate pudding mix
  • 1 1/4 cups water

Directions – preheat oven to 350. combine ingredients and mix well by hand. Spray 2 round cake pans with Pam. Divide batter evenly in each. Bake 20-25 minutes until you see light golden patches on top. Cool completely

Frosting

  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 4 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 tbs vanilla

Directions – cream butter and powdered sugar. Add milk and vanilla and beat well. You may need to add another tablespoon or two of milk to make this easier to frost the cake.

Assembly

  • Place one cake round, flat side up, onto cake plate
  • Frost with a thin layer of frosting
  • Place second cake layer, flat side down on top of frosting
  • Frost top and sides of cake
  • Sprinkle with M&Ms

Store covered in covered container.
