i made my 1st layer cake! it was just as exciting as the 1st time i made pie from scratch. except it was stressful. so stinkin’ stressful. y’all, there is a good reason why there is no picture of the inside of this cake. 1. i was too scared to look at the inside after i cut it and 2. there is a LOOOOOT of buttercream on this cake. by a LOOOOOT, i mean a LOOOOT a LOOOOOOT.
lol, it’s not as easy as it looks to cut cake layers , keep them even, crumb coat the whole thing and then lather on the final “pretty” layer. it’s actually a work of art.
i’ll get it down, eventually. this time, i was just happy that it looked bomb.com (on the outside) and BONUS POINTS: it tasted fab! yay!
i bought some fun 6” pans, so i can’t wait to make cute, super tall cakes.
ps. this is a chocolate cake with kahlua buttercream. basically, these cupcakes. but as a cake. next time, i’m going to add strawberries to the layers. yum.
