Happy 1 Month Birthday Lotus!


My darling baby niece turned 1 month old on Saturday, so of course I had to bake her a cake.  Her 3 year old brother did her a favor and blew out the candle.  And then had us sing happy birthday to him and blew out another candle.  Because we don't spoil him or anything.

Orange Buttercream


  • 2 sticks unsalted butter at room temperature
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 pounds powdered sugar
  • 5 drops orange oil (or about 1 teaspoon orange extract)
  • 5-7 tablespoons water


Beat together butter, salt, and orange oil.  Slowly beat in powdered sugar.  Add in water one tablespoon at a time until desired consistency is reached.  Frost cake.
