I watched a couple episodes of Ace of Cakes and became inspired to attempt a birthday cake for Kaylee (and myself). Up until now I have typically either just made a flat cake in a 9 X 13 or one of my friends takes pity on me and helps me out or I break down and buy one from the store. Not this year! This year I am bound and determined not to be embarrassed by my poor, pitiful cakes. This is the year of the CAKE! I will rise to the occasion! I will overcome my weaknesses! I will, After 17 years of marriage finally own my own set of cake pans--nothing special, just your basic, heavy duty 9" rounds. I will Beat, stir and frost my fingers to the bone until I am sure that my creations are as beautiful to look at as they are to eat! Just like THIS ONE.
Wait a sec.
Who am I kidding here?
This is how my SAD, little cake actually will turn out.
Maybe I'll just stop at actually owning the pans!
....................Look aren't they beautiful?
