Colorful layered cake recipe

Colorful layered cake

Man, I gave you a little teaser last week of the Balloons & Books baby shower and then I was mum! Well, mum no more, I’m sharing more details about the party and today it’s the colorful cake that Mary Elizabeth Hammond made for our celebration of Victoria and baby Anthem. Layered cakes are nothing new, but I still find them totally charming and shocking—I’ve never actually seen one in person, nor have I ever come close to making even one of those layers, nay, a half of one of those layers. I did burn a cake mix once though, but that’s a story for another day.Baby shower cakeBalloons and books baby showerColorful layered cakecolorful birthday cake

So, I thought it would be fun to make it nondescript from the outside so that it would be a little mullet moment when it was cut open (you know, business in the front, party in the back). Ha! Not true, I just totally forgot to do anything about a cake topper. But I like the excuse so I’m going to stick with it. I should have been a spin doctor.
