The Gastrokid Scamp of Approval: Smitten Kitchen’s Birthday Cake

IMG_3048
This week’s Gastrokid Scamp of Approval goes to longtime blogger couple Smitten Kitchen for their awesome recipe for bday cake. It’s classic, iconic, platonic ideal of a two layer yellow cake with chocolate frosting and sprinkles. In this age of buyable, quasi-homemade corporate cupcakes and americana sweets, it’s lovely to see something so American and homemade being celebrated. The story behind it is just as sweet too: The Smitten Kitchen power couple are expecting a baby soon, which was the inspiration for this recipe, so congrats Gastroparents to be. There’s a Gastrokid Cookbook: Feeding a Foodie Family in a Fast Food World coming your way for further family cooking ideas.

And readers, check out this awesome Smitten Kitchen pic of the cake:
