monday munchies / 1st birthday smash cake & cupcakes

cake cake cake cake cake...

  • -3 cups flour
  • -1 tsp baking soda
  • -1 1/2 cups mashed bananas (3-4 bananas)
  • -1 tsp lemon juice
  • -1/2 cup butter, softened
  • -1/4 cup canola oil
  • -1 1/4 cups granulated sugar
  • -1/2 cup packed light-brown sugar
  • -3 eggs
  • -1 tsp vanilla extract
  • -1 1/2 cups buttermilk
extras: animal crackers, sprinkles, cream cheese frosting (2; 16 oz tubs), cupcake pans, liners, 3 mini cake pans 
side note: i am a terrible frosting maker, its either too thick or too runny. i didn't have the patience to test it out for lincoln's party, so i bought some. if you think your a rad frosting maker.. you should totally go for it! recipe found on [cooking classy]

1. preheat oven to 350, and grease cake pans, fill cupcake trays with liners. 2. mix liquid ingredients (bananas, eggs, vanilla, buttermilk, oil, butter, lemon juice, and sugar) in first. 3. add baking soda and flour. 4. bake for 20 min and test with toothpick. my cupcakes cooked in about 25 min and my mini cakes took about 30-35 min. 5. cool on drying rack. 

- for cupcakes, wait until cool, frost, sprinkle, decorate.
- for mini cakes, with a bread knife, cut off pointed top on two of the three to make flat. leave one for the top of the cake. frost in between each layer. and around the entire cake. sprinkle, decorate. 

sorry for the lack of step by step photos. i was a whirlwind prepping for this party. i was mostly happy these were made in time. so happy because...  someone enjoyed his cake...
