Who doesn’t love a little dash of color in their lives(especially lately)? The cake is simple and so easy to make. Prep time is less than 10 mins and baking time is no more than 25 mins.. so in less than an hour, you could be digging into this scrumptious slice of heaven. My family loves more of a drizzle than a thick frosting.

Lately, most of my cakes have been gluten-free and my go-to flour is Bob’s Red Mill – 1-to-1. After many trials and tribulations, this is the flour that has consistently worked best for me. The creativity of cakes depends on your personal choice and mood. I also love getting creative with fresh flowers, fruits, chocolate flakes, and edible bling. You can also bake a bundt cake with this recipe. I have an array of cake pans and the cakes look different depending on the pan used. Check out the list at the end of the post to see some of my favorites
