cake time...

It's all about the cake... I mean, a sunday morning, with some good movie filling the family room... the children running up and down between playtime in the basement, drinking in some of the movie or *gasp* helping me... is a great time to make a cake. It's almost a form of meditation.

I started with this mirangue thing last night... but I goofed it up.
The mirangue... choco mirangue - btw, did not come out... and, in point of fact, balled up and squished quite nicely... it's the lump between the two cakes in this first picute;

[ :: the cakes just out of the pans... :: ]

mmk... so I cut each cake in half... horozontally, with a bread knife and make four layers. Chocolate butter cream filling on the first layer...

[ :: Choco butter cream :: ]

and then add a layer and scoop on strawberry cake filling. Z made it last summer and it's yumm!

[ :: Layer two... :: ]

I put whipped white icing on the next layer...

[ :: Layer three :: ]

and topped it all off with the last layer of cake and poured warm butter-caramel icing over it so it runs down the sides... and sprinkled cocoa and icing sugar...

[ :: Layer four :: ]

Then, because it's a birthday cake... I gotta do the decorating thing... and I suck... deal... :)

And we ate it tonight with the family at my MILs house...

Here it is fulfilling it's cakey destiny! :D
