I originally saw this delectable display on Cupcakes and Cashmere back in January and decided in that moment that this cake and I were meant for each other. So for a friend's 25th birthday I pulled together my finest flour and went to work, apron and all. Now, let's call it like we see it — my cake is a tad bit messier, and there's good reason for it. First, the birthday girl arrived with her dog and he immediately ran into the kitchen and began to pee on things while I was in the middle of frosting. The problem was, (aside from the dog urine on the side of my fridge) the cake was supposed to be a surprise and I was elbow deep in pink frosting. Needless to say, I was powerless to stop the peeing pooch but couldn't holler for help because again, it was a surprise cake and I didn't want the birthday girl to see her new cake stand either. So while I fought off the yipping tyrant at my ankles, I ferociously frosted. To make matters worse, I needed a quick place to store the cake where she wouldn't find it and the dog wouldn't eat it. Fearful of what would happen if I stuck it outside on the fire escape, I placed the cake in the Tupperware cabinet. Classy move, I know.
But all peeing pooch problems aside, it was lick-the-spoon delicious nonetheless. Indeed I've never met a piece of cake I didn't like.
