Project Name: The Pastel Goth Cake
Brief Description: So I had my 28th last weekend, and I was absolutely determined to make my own birthday cake. This cake took me about six hours to make! It was my very first multi layer cake, and cake i decorated 'properly'. I made my hubby buy me a bunch of proper decorating tools to try and get a smooth icing finish rather than rely on a butter knife.
First I made four chocolate mud cakes. Once they had cooled down, I trimmed them so they had flat tops and filled them with a layer of chocolate ganache.
Then I made a sour cherry buttercream icing and iced the cake making sure to do a proper crumb layer. Once that was done and set, I got to dribble a chocolate glaze over the top (I cheated here and used a storebought glaze). Then decorated the cake with my favourite junk foods and purple icing bits every where.
