Welcome back to another weekly Pinterest Challenge! But first, I wanted to share something else I made!. You may recall seeing this cake in a recent Too Cute Not to Toot.
First of all, I have to say that I do not have great success with layer cakes. I like to blame it on my cake pans . . .I think they are slightly larger than what I need but I think the problem is really me. I made the cheesecake and then made the cake. Let everything cool and attempted to get them out of the pans unsuccessfully HA I need to really get some parchment paper to use in the pans - I'm sure that would solve the problem. My cheesecake layer and the cake layers were not the same size. . the cheesecake was probably about a 1/2 inch wider all the way around. I'm sure a profession baker would have cute them to size but not me :-) I just frosted that baby and let it go. Now, my frosting . . .I lost count on the number of cups of powdered sugar I put in . . .it called for 6 and I did somewhere between 5 and like 8 . .. it was pretty sweet so I'm leaning more toward the 8!!! I know you are dying for a photo so here ya go.
If you want to improve on my attempt check out the recipe over at Bird on a Cake - she gives great instructions on how to put this together.
My one Pinterest attempt this week was a failure.
