Winter Wonderland cake recipe .. 

I’m so excited to share this recipe, not only because is my first time ever making a cake from scratch, but also because I made for Mia’s birthday last month. As I was saying on my previous post, i’ve been cancelling Mia’s birthday first for the weather, then she got sick, then the holidays, and I still have the expensive birthday cake that I bought for her birthday party in the freezer!! Can you believe it that if you leave the cake in the freezer well storage it can last up to one year?? We will see when we try it lol! I hope this weekend we finally have better luck and she can have her 2 year party!! Anyways, I love love this recipe for kids birthday, i’m no a very creative person but I did my best to make it as pretty as possible. It taste soo good that Mia’s cousin wanted to eat cake all day!
