Nat’s Winter Birthday

It was only fitting that Nathalie’s December birthday continue the Winter Wonderland theme that engulfed her home.  After all the Christmas decorations were complete, we kept the momentum going setting up for her birthday dinner.  The tables were covered in white linen and set with adorable snowflake themed paper plates from Ikea.  Since the birthday girl was outdoing herself with a delicious meal of Chicken Parmesan and Lasagna, I took care of the dessert table.  It was a wonderful night filled with family, friends, and lots of food.

White Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting

When it came to this dessert, I was so exhausted that I didn’t have the energy to make a filling.  I just bought vanilla pudding cups, blended it with approximately 1/2 C of the frosting to disguise it and called it a day.  This was by far the best tasting cake I have ever made.  It was so delicious and the filling actually made it light.  The frosting was heaven just keep it cold, because, as you can see, it started melting as I was frosting it.  Lesson learned.
