One of the ladies from church asked me to make a cake for her mother's 100th birthday celebration. I was honored, to say the least. All she wanted was pink and purple and NO FONDANT. The rest was up to me. No pressure!
Anyhoo, that's what I came up with. It was massive. 14" and very, very heavy. I make weird roses.
I have only made one other 14" cake, and I had forgotten how big that really is. It ended up being too tall for the box so I had to prop the lid open. It never occurred to me that the cake box wouldn't be deep enough. I felt a little betrayed by the box.
Plus 40 cupcakes for the nursing home staff. Because who doesn't like cupcakes?
I thought it came out nice, and she loved the cake, so yay!
That's all for now.
