It's time for Carrie's Friday Foto Fun! Here is that cake I was going to post a couple weeks ago:
Cute right? I think it is perfect for Valentines Day don't you? Yeah, well this little ditty gave me a workout. But the upside is you get to learn from my mistakes. Here are a list of errors you can avoid since I made them for you:
First mistake: I was trying to make the cake while caring for my ailing child.
Second mistake: I didn't level the cake off.
Third mistake: I didn't put it on a cake board.
Fourth mistake: I tried to fill a cake without making a damn around the edge.
By the way, this is a chocolate cake (out of a box) filled with raspberry jam (from a jar) iced with chocolate frosting (from a can) and garnished with melted white chocolate. So, if you heed the warnings above, you can throw this together on the fly too:-)
