cake wreck

I volunteered to make a birthday cake for a friend. I’m pretty good at baking from a deliciousness perspective, but my end-product tends to look a bit… rustic. So I decided to take this one seriously. I drew up battle plans and everything.

I purchased the appropriate icings. I baked the cake and let it cool completely, which I never do, and which is always my downfall. I did the trick where you saw the dome off to make the cake level. And then I lost my goddamn mind and just started scribbling icing all over the cake.

But the realization that I was making a cake wreck only dawned on me gradually.  I started getting hysterical around the first Y.

And hey, the dots are messy, but at least they mostly don’t look like poo-coils (anymore).  Right?

I also got some lovely festive candles!  (The only ones in the store, naturally.)
