Yep, I did it. Took that Lemon-Poppyseed Cake and turned it into a fabulous three-tiered creation for my friend's birthday. As I've said here before, sometimes I manage to surprise myself.
Here's the result:
Cake layers baked.
A good start.
Layered, tiered and frosted.
Lots of drinking straws buried underneath for support!
The birthday girl and her husband.
Think she's happy - hope so!
I'll admit - it tasted pretty good.
Not dry at all!
There is a wedding cake to bake in my future, so this was good practice. In the meantime, however, I will get back to the business of posting recipes that "normal" people would make. Well, maybe.
Unfortunately, I did not get to photograph the cake from it's front. You are looking at the rear and the side (always how we want to be photographed, huh?). Use your imagination....
