Baking Delight: Crafting the Max and Ruby Cake Recipe

For the Cake: – 2 cups all-purpose flour – 1 cup granulated sugar – 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened – 2 eggs – 1 cup milk – 1 teaspoon vanilla extract – 1 tablespoon baking powder – 1/2 teaspoon salt

– 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened – 2 cups powdered sugar – 2-3 tablespoons milk – 1 teaspoon vanilla extract – Red food coloring – Blue food coloring

For Decoration: – Max and Ruby figurines or toys – Optional: Fondant for additional decorations

Instructions: 1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour two 8-inch round cake pans. 2. In a large mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter and granulated sugar until light and fluffy. 3. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Stir in the vanilla extract. 4. In a separate bowl, sift together the all-purpose flour, baking powder, and salt.

1. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, alternating with the milk, beginning and ending with the dry ingredients. Mix until just combined, being careful not to overmix. 2. Divide the batter evenly between the prepared cake pans and smooth the tops with a spatula. 3. Bake in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cakes comes out clean.

1. Remove the cakes from the oven and allow them to cool in the pans for 10 minutes before transferring them to wire racks to cool completely. 2. While the cakes are cooling, prepare the frosting. In a mixing bowl, beat together the softened butter, powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla extract until smooth and creamy. Add more milk if needed to reach your desired consistency.

1. Divide the frosting into two portions. Color one portion with red food coloring and the other portion with blue food coloring, adjusting the intensity to achieve the desired shades for Max and Ruby. 2. Once the cakes have cooled completely, place one cake layer on a serving plate or cake stand. Spread a layer of red frosting evenly over the top.

1. Carefully place the second cake layer on top of the frosted layer. Frost the top and sides of the cake with the blue frosting, creating a smooth finish. 2. Use additional frosting to pipe decorative borders around the top and bottom edges of the cake if desired. 3. Place Max and Ruby figurines or toys on top of the cake for decoration. You can also use fondant to create additional decorations such as flowers, trees, or other elements from the Max and Ruby series.
