The Cake

This was Thatcher's birthday cake. Looks a little plain doesn't it? Just wait until we cut into it...
Oh, yes, there are six layers in that baby. I have never made a cake this big before. This cake idea came from the Cheeky Kitchen, a really fun food blog I follow.
In the original recipe, each layer has fruit - raspberries, orange zest, lemon zest, lime zest, blueberries, and blackberries - though I left all that out, figuring all that extra work would be lost on Thatch. He was just impressed with the size and color of the cake.
It was pretty tasty even without the added fruit flavors and the frosting was really good too. It had a package of white chocolate chips melted into it - something I've never added to any of my butter cream frosting endeavors.
All in all, it was a pretty easy cake to make, just a little more time intensive with all the layers. I might go get myself a piece right now....


  1. That is awesome. The colors are so vibrant. What a great mom. My son turned 2 and I grabbed a muffin and stuck a candle on it.

  2. I love both cakes and they tasted delicious too! The boys' faces are great.
