So tonight we actually got to decorate our cakes. And I’m just going to save you the suspense right now and let you know that my cake was totally the best one.
Not that it’s a competition.
Here’s my “before” cake. I went with the classic seven-layer cake-raspberry jam-cake-icing-cake-raspberry jam-cake format. Turns out I can’t cut cake layers level to save my life, but you know what? I’m pretty sure the people who are going to be eating it won’t care.
And then, the after:
Look at those colours, will you? Am I not the freaking Titian of icing? (You don’t have to answer that. I know I am.)

Beautimous! If you’re serious about this cake stuff, there’s this layer cake slicer that’s been going all over Pinterest (I’ll probably get spammed for including the link in my comment, but here goes): http://www.kitchenkrafts.com/torting-cake-layer-slicer-kit/p/BP3411/tid/CSE/sid/PriceGrabber/
But yeah… for $60 clams, you’d better be pretty serious. 😉
You totally did get spammed too! And no, I’m not that committed. Michaels does sell a cake slicer for $30, which I looked at, but I don’t think I’m at a stage where I can’t live without it right now.
Fun 😉 I love to bake, but can’t eat what I make. No problem with takers, though. Enjoy your culinary adventures!
Yeah I know. It’s dangerous having all this cake around. We’ve been sending them to my and my husband’s offices. That’s been going down well.
