birthday cake!

my mother in law’s birthday cake: 3 layers, chocolate cake, my homemade buttercream. it’s sort of a cake wreck, not quite even and leaning slightly, and i am a smooth icing FAILURE but i’m alright with that.

DSCF1661the top pissed me off, too. i scraped and restarted 3 times. i wish someone would teach me how to write on cakes …

DSCF1667update: i started liking this cake a lot better the more i looked at it. the sides really did come out nice, how i wanted them. and it was freaking delicious.
