First off – let me say that I have absolutely NO desire at this point in life to sell decorated cakes. I don’t know how those of you that sell cakes do it. There’s so much pressure! If you mess up, you don’t have to redo just one cookie – you have to redo entire cakes – sometimes stacks of cakes!
I had a last minute realization that I didn’t have any cake for Averie’s actual birthday. Panic set in, and then I calmly reminded myself that my family is going to love whatever I make for them, so I decided to just make the cake myself.
Any normal parent would grab their 9×13 pan and a box cake mix, a tub of frosting, maybe a few sprinkles and call it good. Of course I wouldn’t do that…
I put together this crazy, four layered pink cake. I think it turned out pretty good – considering that decorating cakes is not my cup of tea. And I even made my own icing and all. Because really, who doesn’t love a good buttercream!?
Is it perfect? Heck no – that baby was leaning to the left like crazy and had defined lines where each tier of the cake was – but who cares if you’re just going to eat it anyway?! I managed not to get any crumbs in the icing – that was my big accomplishment this time around!
