Take the Cake.

Well, it's happened. I've finally done my first unassisted two-layer cake.

Yes, it was from a mix.

Yes, the frosting was from a can.

No, I'm not Martha Stewart.

My mom wanted a chocolate cake with rainbow-chip white frosting (because, let's be honest, how AWESOME is rainbow-chip?), so I set out to make it.

I like to cook. And I like to bake. But I'm not a cutesy baker, nor am I even a creative baker (usually), so decorating a cake seemed a daunting task. But it turned out pretty nice, if I do say so myself!

Ummmm...here was where I had two pictures of the cake to show you. But...my photos won't upload to Blogger. Hopefully I can fix the problem and edit this later. Suffice it to say, I made a cake. And it will be delicious.

Technology. *sigh*

  1. Tazo, it's Pax.... so I randomly read your blog entries maybe like twice a month, or maybe every two months. Also, I randomly make cakes sometimes.
    3 tips, first, use betty crocker mix, it is better. (also golden vanilla is the best if you can find a store that carries it).

    second, after each layer of cake cools, wrap it in seran wrap and put it in the freezer for at least a few hours, or a week, doesn't matter. Pull it out right before you frost it. People will be amazed and comment how good it is.

    Third, my strategy is decorating is not something I'm good at so instead I try to just add more layers each time... but I got to 5 layers and it was ridiculous so now I just make great tasting lame looking cakes. See how many layers you can do.

    anyway, three random words of wisdom for the next three years from pax

    p.s. I'm sure your cake looked and tasted amazing

  2. Give Deb a big "Happy birthday" hug from us! And I agree; rainbow-chip frosting is awesome.
