Since my return to SA one week ago, I've been lazing around and basically do nothing all day long. I know that I have to keep baking/ cooking so that I can finish my ingredients before the big move, but I just don't have the mood. I couldn't even concentrate when I read the recipe of perfect party cake and I have to read a few times before I finally get an idea of how to proceed. Two ingredients from the recipe managed to catch my eyes though, and I knew that I have to bake the cake so that I can get rid of the leftover raspberry jam and sweetened coconut in my pantry.
So I managed to bake the cake half-heartedly today. I wanted to start baking in the morning, but instead of doing so, I lied down on sofa and stared at my laptop screen until noon. And then I had to rush through the process in order to catch the afternoon sun for my pictures. Anyway, the cake looks small in the picture because I used two 6-inch cake pans and made only 3/4 portion of the recipe. Well, don't ask me how I came up with 3/4 portion, the calculation of the amount needed for each ingredient almost drove me nuts!
Having said that, I'm really glad that I baked the cake. Other than getting rid of two items as mentioned above, the cake is very yummy, in my opinion! This is the first time I made such a "tall" cake and I couldn't help but admired the cake for quite a while before I cut a slice and prepared the set-up for photo-taking. :-)
If you want to give the recipe a try, head over to Carol's blog! Don't forget to check out the rest of the TWD-ers' versions of perfect party cake from TWD blogroll!
