Let Them Eat Cake

Friday, March 28, 2008

I spent most of Thursday evening baking a cake for my friend's parent's vowel renewal ceremony. This is the cake in progress. I head to the reception hall tomorrow for the rest of the prep/cutting/platting/serving. I found I'm not a huge fan of cake baking....but ask me in a month from now and I'm sure I will tell you I like it again.

Ok Christy,
I think that cake looked gorgeous! I know that you said it wasn't smooth, but the trick to that is letting the cake air dry. Hmmm...also buttercream can take a while to dry and sometimes it won't. Just make sure you follow the recipe exactly. I think you did an awesome job. I dare not attempt a square cake, but after looking at yours I think I could in the future maybe! WOW! Congrats you did an awesome job and who cares if the icing isn't smooth, the overall look of the cake is great! Be proud of yourself you stepped out of your box and did something new. Congrats and keep on baking!
