The Birthday boy with his lovely wife.
There are only 2 layers to this cake. I brushed some coffee liquer over the layer. Its ok for adults.
The cake is then filled with Coffee and Walnut frosting.
My niece celebrated her 21st birthday last weekend.
When I knew that she will be celebrating her birthday, I had decided to myself to make her some cupcakes and in fact created a cupcake stand for that too.
Making cupcakes could be easy. I am pretty comfortable with them- no problem.
Then my sister-in-law told me that the birthday girl would prefer a "21" cake. Ah! what! Gosh, I had never done that before. 101 reasons came up to refuse her - I haven't done it before. My decorating is no good. What if the cake falls apart? What if the cake is too hard and dry?
I am really being pushed out of my comfort zone.
But if this is her birthday wish, I got to do it. No matter what. I called this my Project 21.
Thank God with a little tender loving care and love, I managed to bake her this cake.
Now I had a whole box of broken cake- good timing for trying out cake pops?
