Cake Paulette Recipe

Special birthday cake for one of my YouTube follower Paulette. She’s been following both of my channels and commenting pretty much on all of my uploads, always very sweet and meaningful. She kindly asked me to bake a cake on her birthday, so I thought of making a “from scratch” recipe and call it cake Paulette.

I made a simple and easy to follow cake recipe. Soft , light, cardamom flavored cake layers topped with simplest vanilla buttercream, finished with a thick and rich chocolate ganache .

My family loved the cake, and I really hope everyone else will try and enjoy it as much as we did .

Lastly, I want to wish Paulette a very happy birthday, thank her and all of my followers for their love and support!

I appreciate it very very much!
