Buttermilk Birthday Cake with Salted Caramel Buttercream Frosting

Matt’s birthday was last month, and despite the fact that life was chaotic that week, I made up for my negligence with a yummy cake a few days late.  He claims that his favorite cake is plain vanilla with store bought chocolate frosting…yes the kind from a jar.  He has a wife that makes from-scratch baked goods and that is his favorite.  There are no words.

I was prepared to set aside my pride and actually use the jarred frosting, because that is how much I love the man.  But when I asked him for his request, he said vanilla cake with one of my homemade buttercream frostings.  I almost jumped for joy.  So on one of our last snow days of the year, I whipped up this lovely cake using some recipes already on the blog.

Super delicious, and pretty to boot!  This is fast becoming my favorite vanilla cake to make.  It goes well with just about any icing and has a perfect consistency.  Also, salted caramel anything is just amazing…give me a spoon and I’m good to go.
