Vanilla-Butterscotch Cake

This cake was really a very special cake as it was our 10th wedding anniversary. I found the recipe below at www.allrecipes. com and it was such an easy way to make the butterscotch cake. I just added a few things for decoration from my side and my husband and kid just relished on this cake...

1 pack white/yellow cake mix
1 (3.4 oz) package instant butterscotch pudding mix
1 cup milk
1/2 cup vegetable oil
4 egg whites

1 cup butterscotch chips and 1 cup chopped walnuts for decoration

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Prepare 2 heart shape 8-inch cake pans with wax paper and cooking spray. In a large bowl, mix all the ingredients and beat on a medium speed for about 2 mins. Pour the batter into the pans evenly. Bake for about 25-27 mins or until the toothpick inserted comes out clean. Cool completely before frosting.

For frosting I prepared the whipped cream and frosted the cake with it. Cut the butterscotch chips into tiny pieces and mix it with the chopped walnuts. Decorate the sides of the cake with the mixture by throwing it lightly with a spoon. Decorate the top of the cake with any design you like!!
