a three-tiered cake

So you know what I did Friday? I baked. I baked a whole heck of a lot. I baked 8 cakes in fact but only frosted 6. The first vanilla cake recipe I used did not turn out at all, so it was back to my mixing bowl, cake pans and ingredients to make another vanilla cake. Why did I bake so much? For a friend's daughter's 2nd birthday requiring a three-tiered cake. 

Have you ever made a three-tiered cake? Me neither until Friday. But I was asked to make this cake. 
 Yup this cake, in all its three-tiered, frosting curly Qs and sprinkles glory.
So I accepted the challenge and arming myself with how do I stabilize the cake? (answer: dowels), what cake flavors do you want? (answer: chocolate, vanilla and strawberry) I set out to recreate that cake in all its glory and splendor.

And here it is...

 Wait for it... (you think I would reveal the final photo first?)


Ta-da!


And I won't be making another cake for a long time... happy Monday friends!
