Snowy: I am agog at your FIRST?! attempt at cake making! You are certainly NO slouch in the baking department! I remember, in this thread, that you said you barely cooked at all; what a PRO you've turned into. I'm so proud of you and I bet that the buttons are bursting off of your shirt, too! I especially like the tiered, painted glass cake stand that you have to display it on; very beautiful. I adore making coconut cakes and have a vintage cake stand that I present mine on; they just make ANY cake look nice, but when they're as perfect as yours, they look even better.Originally Posted by SnowflakeGirl
I'm seconding all the advice you received on frosting the cake; it's sound and good advice. Chill the cake, or freeze it, use a spatula and make your first layer very thin. Keep posting your success stories here to receive the praise you so-o-o-o deserve!
