For my boss's birthday, I made him a slightly more masculine cake than I normally make. This is a double layer chocolate cake with strawberry Swiss meringue buttercream, a semi sweet chocolate drip, and strawberry and gold leaf garnish. I was a little worried that the cake was a bit overbaked, but the frosting helped.




I'm not good at putting myself "out there" at work, and I hope my cake making is making me more recognizable in the department without me having to awkwardly try to be sociable all the time. \_(ツ)_/ we'll see!!

Looks delicious!  I don't care what company policy says, baking cakes and other sweets totally makes a difference when it comes to performance reviews and promotions! Cheesy
