Here's what you will need for the actual cake. 2 sticks of unsalted butter (at room temperature), 3 cups of all-purpose flour, 1 tbsp of baking powder, 1/2 tsp. salt, 1 3/4 cups sugar, 4 large eggs (at room temperature), 1 tbsp vanilla extract, 1 1/4 cups of whole milk.
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Spray 2 round cake pans with bakers joy; make sure to coat thoroughly so that your cakes don't stick.
Whisk your flour, baking powder and salt in a bowl until combined.
Oh wait!!! Make sure to each egg crack it...one at a time. Yeah we shouldn't assume things should we.
We now need to add in our flour. Let's do 3 batches....1....2....3...starting with flour then add milk....then add flour...then add milk....more flour....last part of the milk....then all the flour. Make sure to start with flour and end with flour.
Silly I know....but that's just me.
Oh wait...you are probably just reading this now and then going to make it later. So re-read the top part and just skip the last 2 questions. Then if you are reading this the second time cause you are making it...now you can read the last 2 questions. So...how did you do?
Place some paper towels over the cake to cover it and place your pan back on top. One at a time..
Now just let them completely cool.
Ok..now let's make the icing. Yum yum!
Cream together your cream cheese and butter till all mixed together.
Place the other layer on top of that.
Wow...that's really hard for me to say. But since I had my husband right there telling me over and over again...IT'S OK. I finally said..whatever....fine....I'll move on.
We are now going to put the kit kats around the edges...it took exactly 11 packages of kit kats. I placed 2 of them at a time on there instead of 1. Continue around the whole cake till it's all covered.
And now our eggs.
And we are done....PRETTY!!! We have an Easter basket cake.
