White Russian Layer Cake Ingredients
FOR CAKE: 3 c cake flour 2 Tbsp baking powder 1 3/4 c sugar 3 oz package of instant vanilla pudding powder 1 1/2 c unsalted butter, room temperature 4 large eggs, room temperature 1 Tbsp pure vanilla extract 2 tsp salt 1/2 c heavy cream 1 c Kahlua
FOR VODKA GLAZE: 1/2 c vodka 1 tsp pure vanilla extract 1 tsp heavy cream 3/4 c confectioners’ sugar
FOR KAHLUA FROSTING: 1 1/2 c unsalted butter, room temperature 1 c cream cheese, room temperature 3 1/2 c confectioners’ sugar 2 tsp pure vanilla extract 4 Tbsp Kahlua (or to taste) Dark chocolate shavings, garnish
Directions
1 preheat oven to 350’F Grease and line with parchment rounds, two 9 inch cake pans. Set aside.
2 In a large bowl sift together flour, salt, baking powder and pudding mix. Set aside.
3 In a measuring cup mix vanilla, Kahlua and cream together. Set aside.
4 In another large mixing bowl cream butter and the sugar together. Beat in eggs, one egg at a time.
5 Mix flour mixture into batter gradually in thirds, alternating with the Kahlua mixture to the bowl in between adding the flour mixture. Starting and ending with the flour mixture. All in all you will add: Flour, Kahlua, Flour, Kahlua, and then Flour. Completely incorporate but do not over mix.
6 Pour batter out evenly between the two pans. Bake on the center wrack for about 32-35 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out almost clean.
7 For Vodka glaze, Mix all ingredients together in a small bowl, adding additional confectioner’s sugar as needed to make the glaze as thick as you like. I like it to be thick like paint, but not so thick it can’t soak into the cakes. Set aside.
8 For Frosting: Beat butter, cream cheese r and vanilla together. Slowly add confectioner’s sugar until completely incorporated. Gradually add Kahlua and whip until completely smooth. Set aside.
9 ASSEMBLY! Once cakes are completely cooled, level off any doming with a serrated knife or cake leveler. Cut each cake in half to make four thin cake layers.
Place first layer on a cake circle. Spread a few tablespoons of the vodka glaze evenly over layer, then frost with Kahlua frosting. Repeat this process with the other layers, omitting the vodka glaze on the very top layer. Frost entire cake as desired and garnish with chocolate shavings.
Serve cake room temperature.

“some historians think that michelangelo was drawing god in a human brain. very few people knew what one looked like at the time; but michelangelo had dissected cadavers and would have known. it even has the hint of a brain stem. if true this would have been a great “fuck you” to the pope whom he was not friendly with but also would have meant god was in a human brain, or created by man.”

Interesting.

also michelangelo painted a baby angel flipping off the pope

image

the blond one, you see his right hand? that’s called the fig and it’s an old world european gesture for ‘fuck you” because apparently Pope Juluis II was a total raging asshole and everyone hated him

but nobody ever noticed this little fucker because the ceiling was so high

and then thirty years later they called michelangelo back to paint the wall behind the altar and he wasted no time in painting the gates of hell behind the pope’s chair

what a badass

It amuses me to this day how much Michelangelo hated his job

The Robert Pattinson of his trade.

I sometimes wonder if Americans get this part of the film, because basically all the Swans in England belong to the Queen and it’s against the law to kill one, and because they’re Police Officers, they obviously can’t break the law so they save the Swan

I am an american and I had no idea thank

I am british and I had no idea thank

I am the Queen and I had no idea thank
