TWD: Perfect Party Cake

Ahh Tuesday with Dorie again. I missed you. This weeks recipe was the Perfect Party Cake chosen by Carol of Mix..Mix...Stir..Stir. You can find the recipe for this beloved cake on her site - so go check it out (her cake is awesome). To compensate for the last post which was SUPER long (thank you Cassie) I will make this short and sweet (and because I am working on baking 100 cupcakes right now!). I made this cake for a partner's wife's birthday a while back. I started out making another recipe, but when i dropped that cake and ruined it - at about 10:30 PM - and had to start over - I switched to my faithful Dorie. No inside pictures since this was how it left my super cautious (this time around) hands. But, word was that it was exactly what the birthday girl wanted. A success I say. I will definately give this another try - and you should too!

  6. I LOVE the cake. Very nice especially with the drop flowers. 100 cupcakes? Are you crazy are just the best person every? Good luck. My biggest fear is dropping the cake, especially on the day of the event!!!
