Sebastian's 4th Birthday Cake

I can't believe I forgot to post this one!  In June, we celebrating Sebastian's 4th birthday.  I asked him what he wanted for his cake and he said he wanted a lollipop cake.  Easy!
I made a vanilla cake with buttercream icing and I stuck a ton of lollipops in it, all over the place.  I was feeling stressed out and didn't feel like investing a whole lot of time in decorating his cake, so this is what was made.  It tasted great, and I am sticking with this cake recipe. The cake was delicious and super moist.  It stayed moist for a week too!  It is versatile and can be adapted to a number of different flavors. 

I am still searching for a good icing recipe.  This one was a bit too sweet.  I am still working on it. I like the MM fondant, but it is a lot of work to do all the decorations for a cake that way.  It takes time, and that is something I do not have a whole lot of with two small children in the house.
