Cream Cheese Sheet Cake

Well I am glad I didn't attempt to start any gardening, because Mother Nature would have just killed it all.  After a few weeks of beautiful weather and a few thunderstorms....I am now looking at a blizzard outside.  Ugly, horrible, freezing snow.  And we are supposed to get 6 inches.

So I did what any one else would do.  I went to the kitchen to bake.  I made this cream cheese sheet cake while I cried a little on the inside watching the snow blanket our green grass.

Cream Cheese Sheet Cake

2 Cups Sugar
1 Cup Butter, Softened
8 oz Cream Cheese
4 Eggs
2 tsp Vanilla Extract
3 Cups Flour
1/2 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp Baking Soda
1 tsp Baking Powder

1/2 Cup Butter Softened
4 oz Cream Cheese
3 1/2 Cups Powdered Sugar
3 Tbsp Milk
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
Food Coloring

In a large bowl, beat together sugar, butter, cream cheese and eggs until well combined.  Add in vanilla and beat for about another minute.  In a small bowl add flour, salt, baking soda and baking powder.  Add flour mixture, 1 cup at a time, mixing well after each addition.  

Spread batter into a 11x17 inch pan with sides.  Bake at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.  Let cool completely.  

For the frosting, beat butter and cream cheese until smooth.  Add milk and vanilla extract and 1 cup powdered sugar, beating until smooth.  Add remaining powdered sugar, 1 cup at time until desired consistency.  Spread over cake and cut into bars.  Refrigerate remains.

Inside our kitchen, there are engaging tools (Cooking Utensils) which are crafted and designed with Engineering Technology. And we are unaware (Foodies and home cooks alike) that our kitchen tools are graphically designed to serve its purpose. But there is a network of Chefs who are engaged in social media and they are willing to share their expertise. And these include their reviews, videos, recipes, techniques and buying guides.

Not to mention a passionate community of cooks and food lovers are engaged in social media and blogging sharing their personal preferences in cooking. Creating their own cooking style, creativity in presentation and a combination of recipe design. But let us not forget about Designing the Menu, in fact graphically designed menu is essential to customer in a restaurant because it will attract them to order. If we will do more research, we can find recipes coming from top cookbooks and magazines, a growing number of recipes are shared by the cooks in their community websites.
