Baking a CaKe....

My bestie of 11 years just turned 30... so of course we MUST celebrate the big 30! This bestie of mine is the most amazing friend, actually amazing doesn't even begin to describe her! Love you Beck!

Anyhooo... I decided, not only will I make cupcakes but a CAKE! I have NEVER EVER baked a cake and I may NEVER EVER bake one again! LOL

At this point let me take a lil moment to say how much I ADMIRE cake bakers/decorators! Honestly, baking the cake easy... BUT making it even- now that is TRUE TALENT! Oh and the icing... how the heck do you all get it sooo smooth????

WELL... I had big dreams for this cake, 3 tiers with cupcakes flowing down the cake! Ummm... let's just say that really didn't pan out! LOL- well actually the "FLOWING" part did! 

First layer... looking good, second layer ohhh this isn't so hard...third layer, "BRAD BRAD... get in here, ... it's SLIIIIIDING"! Ohhh yes, my dreams of a 3 tiered, beautiful cake... DIDN'T HAPPEN!

As I hang my head in shame... here is the PROOF!
Mind you... this angle makes it look way better, I couldn't bring myself to post the actual head on shot.

TGIF!

  1. LOL - good news is that there are plenty of bakers you'll help keep in business, no use spending all your time baking when you have such beautiful stationery to design ;)

  2. I can't stand baking cakes either!!!!! I baked one that was the shape of a ball but it was super small and super easy. I'm too scared to bake another "real" cake! I'd rather stick with cupcakes;o)

  3. Hey it's cute- don't beat yourself up. Did the top tier slide? I think it helps if you put supports in the bottom tier and then put them on the cake with their cake boards...but I'm not sure. I've only seen it on the food network! ;)

  4. Looks yummy, though! I think pro bakers use dowels and some kind of support to keep the layers from sliding. Yea, I only know that from watching Ace of Cakes.
