last year, i was given the privelege of making my sister's birthday cake.
everyone loves funfetti cake, so the mix was taken care of. at this point in my baking career, i was focused more on decorating as opposed to making things from scratch. i knew i wanted to make something more exciting than a two-layer round cake. so i pulled out pans and cupcake tins of various sizes.

while the oddly sized cake components were baking, i mixed up some buttercream frosting and dyed it exciting colors. i'll not share the buttercream frosting recipe because it's horrible. i promise. this cake looked so much better than it tasted. my mom was convinced for a while that this recipe tasted good enough to have me make it for every cake she requested, but i've since discovered significantly more tasty recipes. =P

my sister shares my love of bright colors, so i just made colors that i would enjoy. once the cakes cooled, stacking them was a bit of an ordeal. some of the pans had round corners and others had straight corners and then i had a ton of cupcakes and some bad frosting transitions to cover up. but in the end, everyone was pleased and impressed with the result.

and so commences the photographic evidence.



the base is a two-layer round cake, the middle is from a small container we usually cook corn in, and the top is a cupcake. there are 6 cupcakes around the middle layer, all decorated differently. 3 have the letters of her name, amy, and the others just have dots and circles on them.



and, of course, there was a 14 on the top. because she was 14.  =P





hope you enjoyed my first real cake decorating escapade. though it happened almost a year ago, i thought it pertinent to celebrate the beginning of my career.
