Today, I'm baking this darling cottage cake. I am hosting our annual family tea for my aunt, cousins and sisters-in-law and I thought that a chocolate cottage after a buttercream snowfall would be the perfect dessert.
The cake pan is called Gingerbread House and it is made by Nordic Ware. You can find it online (the link is above) or in many specialty cake supply stores. I just love it.
My go-to cake for this pan is Betty Crocker's Super Moist Cake Mix in Chocolate Fudge. It fills the pan, bakes evenly and has a wonderful chocolate flavor. The buttercream is the classic butter/powdered sugar/vanilla recipe.
