Basic Yellow Cake with Lemon Cream Cheese Frosting

Since today was a historic and special day, I wanted to celebrate President Barack Obama's Inaugruation Ceremony. My menu was Lasagna, cooked broccoli and cauliflower. Of course for dessert, I baked a simple yellow cake by scratch-no box and lemon cream cheese frosting. Here's the finished product, which I think in my opinion tasted pretty good. My son loved it, and wanted to get a second helping.

Don't mind the squiqqly purple lines on the cake, I just wanted to try to decorate it and make it pretty so it won't look so plain. It didn't work out the way I thought it would. So I guess I'll cancell trying to be a cake decorator. Oh yeah, here's a picture of my business liscense, I was so excited to start my own business. I hope that it will be doing well in the months and years to come.
Here's the recipe for the Lemon Cream Cheese Frosting.
*1 8-oz. package cream cheese
*1 stick margarine or butter
*1 box powdered sugar
*1 tsp of lemon extract (or if you fancy vanilla, that would be 1 tsp vanilla)
~Cream the magarine or butter and cream cheese in a bowl. Add the lemon extract (flavoring). Sift the powdered sugar and add to creamed mixture gradually. Spread on top of cake layers.
I hope everyone had a good day and let's not forget to pray for our new president. Hope you all try the cream frosting, it also goes well on cupcakes. What are your favorite desserts. You know, I heard that your favorite dessert says a lot about a person's personality. Hmm, is that really true? Until next time, peace everybody.
