Jury is still out, because it has to be iced and also has to be cut into ... that is the scary part, I won't know if I pulled it off until we cut into it. In front of my child, parents, siblings, and in-laws.
Go ahead, say it with me ... WTF was I thinking?!?!
At any rate, I will post a bigger tutorial with this when all done, not because I feel like I know how to but I certainly know how NOT to do some of it. But it would be remiss of me to not give you a "taste" wouldn't it.
So here you go, a little teaser.
A quick example of what not to do.
The real cake. The original. Yeah. I know, I know.
This is what it looks like presently. I was told that I should plastic wrap the crap out of it and freeze the layers so that the "moisture gets locked in" so I did. Not so sure it that will help me or hurt me though.
I am hoping and praying fervently that once iced the majority of the ugly bits are hidden. I am also praying that it tastes okay and isn't too dry or too food coloring tasting. I tasted as I went and it was fine individually, but with my cheap food coloring I had to add a lot in order to make it get close to the right colors.
**To see the completed cake in all is atrocious glory, head on over to this post.**
