I have never made a layer cake before, much less a four layer cake! I made strawberry and lemon layers so the cake would be a pretty color. I got some ideas on Pinterest that inspired the cake topper.
The cake did not start out very pretty. I cut the top off each layer so that they would stack better:
I had to use an entire can of frosting just to attach the layers and fill in the sides. As I did this, the cake got uglier!
Then I frosted the outside and added some pink sprinkles! This is when I fell in love with this cake! I had to use toothpicks and saran to cover the cake because it was too tall for any lid to fit over it.
I made a little girl clothesline as a cake topper:
And here is the cake as I started cutting it (bad lighting aside!)
Thanks for reading all about my beautiful cake. Now all I need to do is make a Paleo cake! There may be one in the works for a party on Friday....
