Two tier chocolate cake

 

11

I’m making a tiered cake tomorrow for my aunt (more explanations, and pictures, will follow soon!) I’ve never actually made a tiered cake before, actually. Not really, with the different size cakes stacked on top of each other, and such. So I thought I’d test it out first, make a test cake, if you will. I needed to check to see if this particular chocolate cake recipe would be solid enough to take another tier (it was). This cake worked out beautifully, and I could finally try my hand at the rose-icing technique I’ve been wanting to try forever.

As luck would have it, my friend came by that evening so I gave her the cake and told her to take it to work with her. The text she sent me the next day saying “my coworkers are big fans!” made me smile all day.

I put the cake in the freezer after this bit, like I did last time I iced a chocolate cake.
