Mom's Birthday Cake - White Cake with Cream Filling and Butter CreamIcing

This was my first time ever making a filling for a cake.

It turned out great!

I made a batch of my basic white cake recipe and baked it in two 9" round baking pans for 35 to 40 minutes.

I let them cool then placed one on a plate and smothered it in the cream filling. I then put the other cake on top and thinly iced the cake with my famous butter cream icing.

Once I sealed the cake with the thin layer of icing, I followed up with a thicker layer of icing. I dyed half of the remaining icing with red food coloring and put it in a piping bag with and str tip. I iced " Happy 59th Birthday Linda" and piped pink along the edge. I topped it off with sprinkles and it looks awesome and tasted even better!

Here is the recipe for the cream filling.
