I chance upon this Layer cake described as “The best Birthday cake” by one blogger who in turn was inspired by another blog entry that got hundreds of comments. I almost immediately fell for its perfect looks, simple yet so elegant! Wishing for the same results I followed the recipe almost to the dot and here is the result!

It was our Wedding anniversary, my little neighbour had her Birthday on the same day was invited to cut the cake as she was having a proper party another day!

I was not thrilled at how the cake turned out…It had a moist top and was crumbly. The icing, which called for sour cream and bittersweet chocolate ended up being too sour.
