her baking & his cooking

she bakes. he cooks. we eat.

her: 1st layer cake

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.
