Hot day with a baby cake

Remember that picture of a couple of days ago when it was 32 (aka — 0)degrees?  It is nearly 80 (27 degrees) today.  

But I've got cake, so who cares.  Having found what turned out to be a good recipe, I did not have to figure out the scaling.  Which turned out to be a good thing.  It is only a cup and two tablespoons of flour.  And just a 1/8 t of salt.  I could have used miniature measuring spoons.

I've never made a cake before and it was far better than box cake.  No chemicals and I could really tell.  It turned out moist (I think that was just luck) and the icing was good too.  Never made that before either.  

Other than buttermilk (which I could have faked with the Baker's power butter milk substitute or vinegar and milk) I had everything on hand to make this so that made it more fun.  And we don't have the commitment of a whole cake with just the two of us.  I've got a second 6" pan but now that I've done it I don't think I even want to make a two layer cake.
