Without further ado here is my first attempt at a themed cake. I am really pleased with how it turned out and more importantly the birthday boy loved it. I completely forgot to take a better photo of the cake once it was assembled since I was rushing to make cupcakes right before we left. Next time I'll take the time to put more effort into my photos.
It took me a couple of days to construct the whole thing. Like I previously stated I used buttercream instead of fondant since I haven't learned how to work with it yet.
1. I baked a White Cake
2. I leveled my cake and placed it on a simple board
3. I iced the inside with a Whipped Cream Frosting4. I used a crumb coating
Then I baked a Ghirardelli Chocolate Cake which ended up sinking in but still turned out delicious. Oops, I guess I opened the oven a tad too much. I didn't get discouraged though since I ended up torting the cake. I repeated what I did to the first layer but this time I used chocolate buttercream icing. Once the crumb coat was set then I used wooden dowels to hold the layers in place. I frosted the entire cake with a teal buttercream icing
I loved taking on this project and can't wait to take more theme cakes on.
Oops, someone banged the cake against a dish and smashed part of it. I know the cake is not perfect but give me a break I'm an amateur and it was my first attempt after all. Anyways I hope you enjoyed my cake.
