The great and fearful day of the cake

It’s a cake kind of day.

Trepidation.  Fear and trembling.  You know: your basic I-don’t-really-know-what-the-heck-I-am-doing-but-I-will-try-it-anyway-knowing-the-party-is-an-hour-or-two-away-and-if-it-doesn’t-work-out-the-whole-thing-is-RUINED kind of day.  I roll like that.

Today is Amelie Belle’s party.  Because she is 2 now.  She is a cutie-patootie and her Nonna loves her.  So, she is getting (not sure if it was her actual request or just her mama’s, hehe) a 2-tier pale-pink ruffle cake with a bow on top.

Bottom tier: triple-layered chocolate fudge cake with with chocolate fudge filling.  Yes, you can see some chocolate peeking through.  Because I hurry.

Top tier: double-layered lemon-poppy-seed with some very delish fresh lemon curd for filling.

The ruffle technique.  First time try.  Whole cake covered: 7 minutes.  Nice, fast way to go!

The cake stand, btw, is a ice cream dish and a plate, both from The Dollar Tree, glued together.  Pale blue pain inside the upside-down ice cream dish.    Needs a touch-up, but simple and quick.

  1. Oh my goodness! You roll like that? And here I thought you did like those people on the food network with a trial run practice cake and worked out the timing and all so that perfection would be served amide oohs and awes. Now my high (my hand is across my face a la Scarlett O’Hara) thoughts of your awesome cake making has been dashed. You’re just mere mortal after all. ;)
