I took a workshop Saturday on building stacked and lifted tier cakes. Lots of good info and techniques. These babies have some weight so it takes engineering to get them up and keep them up! After the lecture we had about two hours to assemble our own terrifying tower of cake. After a frenzy of activity........ta da!

|Coconut 1-2-3-4 Cake with Seven Minute Frosting|
|Vanilla Butter Cake with Vanilla Swiss Buttercream and Dulce de Leche Filling|
|Chocolate Kahlua Mud cake with Chocolate Buttercream|
|there are tiny gold stars sprinkled on the chocolate roses|
This was a fun little girl's birthday cake with really bold flowers and a pink princess frog with red lipstick and painted nails.
Add to this some Holiday Cakes and a lot of cake truffles. Oh, and some pies. Plus some cookies. Maybe some candy.
February brings a new crop of birthdays, one requesting the Dulce de Leche filled cake. That stuff, which is cooked sweetened condensed milk, should be declared a controlled substance cause I have no control around it!
