Unfortunately, my first 16" round cake did not come out of the pan intact. That is sometimes the nature of the beast. It now finds a home in my freezer awaiting being served at another time. I cant say that Im thrilled to make another 30 cups of batter to make the new layer cake but such is life.
Gluten free cake in the oven, chocolate layer with strawberry filling resting in my in-laws freezer awaiting fondant, ribbon, beads and dots. I am getting so excited!
