No Reason Cakes

I don't bake often.  All of my cakes come from a Duncan Hines Moist Deluxe mix.  And my baking pans are limited to 9" rounds and cupcake trays.

So when I was inspired to make a two tier wedding-esque cake last night, I was probably overreaching.  Especially because the cake was a surprise for my boyfriend.  And we're not engaged.

Friend:  Ummm, did you seriously just make a wedding cake for M?
Me: kinda, i guess
Friend:  What's next?  Are you going to surprise him with a Seating Chart?

Honey, I hope you like yellow cake, frosted with subliminal intentions!

The challenge for me was creating a ~5inch layer with only using a 9inch pan.  It was like that story of the shrinking paper heart: snip snip snip.  Also: umm hello? frosting the crumbly-cut side of a cake is a miserable task.

Cake finally assembled, and decorated with baby's breath and green hydrangeas that M picked me up earlier that day.  Add a last minute wooden dowel chopstick down the center, and I had my first ever two-tier layer cake.   I think it looks pretty snazzy. 

And jokes aside, M LOVED that I made him a cake, and he didn't even mention that it was suspiciously matrimonial.  :)

PS: there really were no subliminal intentions.  Just too much Pintrest lately.

No really.


Happy Thursday!
