Halving the recipe, Doubling the fun

Maya and her friend Greta have decided to cook together on Sundays, so today they picked out a recipe for a yellow cake with butter cream frosting.   I made myself scarce from the kitchen, going in only to check on the cake while they were in the midst of making the frosting, and then to help clean up.   The rest of it was them on their own.    The recipe they used made enough batter for two cakes, so they had to figure out how to halve all the measurements.   And they did a great job with it.    I have to say that I am not much of a cake person.  I have no problem passing up cake or cupcakes.  But the cake the girls made today I can honestly say is one of the best cakes I have ever tasted.  Ever.   Not exaggerating.

I’m going to post the pictures and leave it at that.   Can’t wait to see what they will make next.
