birthday cake for laura.
I learned a very helpful tip:
After baking the cake, place in fridge for half hour. This firms up the cake and prevents it from ripping apart when applying frosting. Frost a thin crumb layer and place in fridge again. This helps for a smoother final spread. After a half hour, frost a final layer for smooth finish.
I was very proud of the frosting job on this cake :)
A little southern birdy told me Laura wanted yellow cake and chocolate cream cheese frosting. I had no idea how to make chocolate cream cheese frosting so I ended up just using chocolate frosting out of a can.
Laura likes animals so picked up a box of animal biscuits to decorate the cake. Here's a picture of the cookies I used.
