(Please ignore the icing smudges on the cake platter, thankyouverymuch).
Well, I'm not Duff Goldman or the Cake Boss and I'm most certainly not a food photographer, but I did manage to make a tasty chocolate layer cake. Or so I'm told.
Craig called and left me a message saying that the cake was a hit. The birthday girl got a slice and was saddened to find out that the remaining cake had been polished off before she could get a second. An order has been placed for another cake next week.
I'm looking forward to baking another one, although I'd be lying if I said I was also looking forward to the accompanying mess. Yikes!
I had chocolate frosting everywhere last night, including on a bottle of Snapple iced tea in the refrigerator.
With anyluck next week's cake won't be lopsided as today's.
I'm still perfecting my craft.
