Chip Mom’s Kitchen #43: Orange Creamsicle Cake

- Posted January 29th, 2018 by

There’s always that person that’s super hard to shop for gift-wise. The person who says they don’t want anything. The person that doesn’t really need anything.  So you know what Chip Mom does then? Duh. I bake! It’s my father-in-law’s birthday and I’m making…

Musical Accompaniment:

tiasu wrote this album as a celebration of their new home, their new sanctuary. In my family, the heart of the home has always been the kitchen, which made the album seem fitting for this article. Family, celebration, home…Sanctuary.

Illustrated Guide:

Preheat your oven to 350* and butter and flour dat bundt pan, fam.  The buttering and flouring is essential to make sure your cake comes out in one piece.  I underestimated this little guy and lost a chunk!

All the cake ingredients go into the big pool and get blended together until smooth!

Evently pour and spread the batter in your bundt pan. At this point, the batter tasted like ice cream.  I have high hopes for the celebration!

Into the food sauna for about 45 – 50 minutes.

While I was waiting for the cake, I went ahead and mixed up the drizzle.  If you are a frosting lover, feel free to mix up extra.  I actually ended up wishing I had a little more…but I have a sweet tooth.

With the cake out of the oven, it needs to cool for a while before I flip it onto the tray.  See the random tin foil?  That’ll help me not make too much of a mess of the plate when I’m drizzling the icing on top.

Make a mess! I actually would scrape the drizzle that made its way to the tray, scoop it up with my fork and drip it back on top.  It gave the whole thing a messy, artsy feel that I liked.

Tada!  Just ugly enough to scream home made, just pretty enough to be happy with.  I added the jelly oranges for fun, since the grocery store had a two for one special on the “old fashioned candy”.

Happy Birthday to Pop Pop the dad-in-law, and Happy Monday to all my Chip Kids.  Remember, Chip Mom luvs ya!
