This past Friday was my parents 17th wedding anniversary. This was my gift for them.
This was the first three layered cake I've attempted. It was so hard to keep them from finding out! I baked two layers of chocolate cake on Friday night when they were out. I was rushing around like a mad woman trying to get them in the oven and also get the frosting made before they got back. I found some very interesting hiding places to store pans of cake!
I mixed up the batter for the yellow cake in our school room off the kitchen. I smuggled things in and out of there without either of them realizing it. I was really surprised! ;)
I was so upset because when I started frosting it crumbs were going everywhere. That's the reason why the middle layer looks the way it does. I pipped icing up the sides with a flat tip to cover the ugliness up. ;)
This cake has been reduced to crumbled pieces. It's kind of funny to think that you spend so much time and energy on something to make it look good and then cut into it!:)
