Amazing Cake and Beautiful Baby Girl!

Oh Mama Is So Proud!
Proud of this sweet Baby Girl
and all that she is and will become!
She is so talented and beautiful inside and out
and while I could brag about her for days, today I'm gonna brag about her baking and cake decorating skills!

I promised you a recipe so here ya go!
This is the one she tweaked and tweaked after many attempts and taste tests! Not that we minded the taste testing sessions but this recipe was the final product and it is oh so good!

I have named it Bella Cake!

Bella Cake

1 cup sifted flour
1 cup sugar
1/2 tsp sea salt
1 1/3 cups of tap water
1 cup sour cream (whole milk)
2 Tablespoons Canola Oil
1 1/4 tsp Almond extract (organic)
1 1/4 tsp Vanilla extract (organic)
4 medium egg whites
Dash of Cinnamon
1 box of white cake mix (I use Duncan Hines)

I double this recipe to make 6 pans (2 of each size)

Grease and flour pans to be used.
Preheat oven to 325.
Gently stir the cake mix, flour, salt and sugar in a medium size bowl.
Add to the bowl water, oil, sour cream, extracts, cinnamon and egg whites.
Beat on low for about 3 minutes.

Pour into greased pans and bake until tops are brown about 25 minutes.
Test with a toothpick to see if it is done before bringing out of the oven.
Cool on wire racks.
