Pink flower cake

I had a girl's night this weekend so I decided to make a very girly cake. I also wanted to try an easy cake recipe. I do not have a 'go to' vanilla cake recipe so I tried this one: which didn't have any strange ingredients and was one of those awesome time saving recipes where you just put everything in the bowl and mix. Very few steps are nice when you bake late at night like I have found myself doing lately.

I also wanted to try some different frostings because I always jump to cream cheese frosting or chocolate frosting so I tried this Chai Frosting recipe:

I liked the cake but I did not love it. I would make the frosting again but put a little less cinnamon because it tasted a little too much like Big Red gum, which I am NOT a fan of. As for the cake, when it was baking it smelled so buttery and wonderful but the taste of the cake was lacking something. I think I will make that again too but alter some things. If I make these changes and it turns out good, I will definitely post them :)

But decorating this cake was fun. I could not find my bigger flower tip so I used a smaller one. It was the number 16 tip. I decorated it very similarly to a previous cake I did which you can read how here:
