This weekend was the birthday party for last week’s birthday girl. It was fun to do. I got to try out a few new techniques! It was great! Although I’m still having troubles with some of my recipes here in the high altitude of UT. My white cake fell, both of them. So I used the bottom half of both cakes to get the right height. I was able to use parchment paper to get more height out of my pan, and I think the layers look better carved out of a 4 inch tall cake instead of a 3 inch tall cake.
Also after the cake was done I used my steamer to make the fondant get all shiny! What do you think? It won’t look right with every style of cake, but it worked really well for this cake! I have to say I LOVE this cake. Anyway, Happy Birthday Emily, I hope your sleepover is a blast!
