After writing this post I am off to make a birthday cake for my daughter. This task is a little intimidating and I'll show you why in just two pictures. See below.
I pledge to do my best. I'm making the cake ahead and freezing it. I'm cutting off the rounded parts to avoid any lopsided tendencies. And I'm making my own frosting. And I'm not doing a castle!! Hopefully that cake decorating class I took a couple years ago will help. Too bad my cake decorating sisters live in a different state.
