Happy Blogoversary to Me!
Hello Sweet Readers!
Today is my "blogoversary"...which means that I have been blogging for one year today! This year has really flown by very fast. It has been so fun to share my sweets and creations with you all. I really appreciate all your support, comments and mutual love for all things sweet and wonderful! I hope you have enjoyed this year, too! I hope to continue on with this blog and would love for you to join me. So please keep your comments coming and check back often! I love getting to know you, even if it is through cyberspace!
The cake above is my second attempt at a three tiered cake. It's a mini one, with the bottom layer only being a six inch cake. I made it for a "bake-off" hosted by a sweet friend. What fun! There were cakes of all sorts and sizes and it was so fun to enjoy. I think I made need to host one of those myself :) Everyone put so much effort and time into it and it really showed. I was grateful to have been invited!
The cake I entered came out kinda crazy, but it is so hard to smooth buttercream, I had a hard time! I have watched videos, read books, etc. But it just doesn't happen for me. I'm thinking it's because I use butter in my buttercream (go figure!). Perhaps the all shortening cakes smooth better, but, honestly, I don't like the taste and don't really want to go there. Anyhow, the cake was tasty..two layers were a frecked mocha cake filled with coffee mousse and the other layer was a chocolate butter cake also filled with coffee mousse. I placed second in the bake -off! Yeah!
Thanks again for celebrating with me! I would love to have a giveaway, but I need to hear from you! I only got one comment regarding it on my last post!! Sooo, if you are interested in me having one, let me know!! I will think of something clever for you all but drop a comment and let me know you are there and thinking it might be a good idea!
Have a great week!!
