Wedding Cake: the middle

I’m surrounded by cake.  Right now.  Literally surrounded.

I’m also eating a vegan enchilada… but that’s neither here nor there.

I’m taking a break on this Friday Wedding Cake Extravaganza Madness Day to give you a glimpse of what’s going on in my kitchen.

The only thing not pictured is my enchilada and crazy crazy hair.  It might be best to use your imagination on those.

Chocolate cake.  It’s secretly vegan!

I used this cake recipe and multiplied it by four to make a two layer 10-inch cake and two half sheet cakes (for behind the scenes slicing).

Vanilla Butter Cake.  Too yummy.

I used this cake recipe, multiplied it by eight and made a two layer 14-inch cake and a two layer 6-inch cake.

Oh!  I freaked out and had to check tomorrow’s weather.  I need to make sure my buttercream can hold up to the sun heat.   I’m good.  Just a maniac.

Back to the cake.  It’s baking.  Right now.

Next up?  Whipping up the buttercream.

Who wants to come help with dishes?  Seriously.
