I'm all for complex desserts with interesting flavor profiles and combinations, but once in awhile it's nice to go back to the simple things. Amy's Bread is a bakery here in New York that makes some incredible treats and one of my favorites is her classic pink cake. It's an old fashioned vanilla cake with a trademark vanilla pink buttercream that is so simple but SO good. I found the recipe online and woke up a few weekends ago with the sudden urge to bake something really decadent. It turned out pretty damn well if I do say so myself. I posted about the best chocolate cake in the world, well this is the best vanilla cake in the world! Decorated with sugar flowers that were sent to me in a birthday package from Miette bakery in San Francisco (thanks, Stella).
