I am so happy 2011 is here, aren't you? 2010 was such a terrible year for me so I couldn't wait for it to come to an end...LOL
Well one thing that I want to change is my procrastination because this was the most stressful day for me and its all on account that damn procrastination of mine. I did two cakes but I waited until the afternoon to do them (PROCRASTINATION) and I forgot to get marscarpone cheese and had to go to Publix. And not every Publix sells marscapone cheese so I had to drive to two Publix's. The worst is that I have to make an appearance to two places this day. My husband's family at 6pm for dinner and mine at 9pm for a second dinner till the New Years. (My in-laws go to bed early...don't ask!) I KNOW...crazzzzzyyyy! So I made two cakes. So thank GOD this was a box cake recipe. It really made things easier but the frosting of the cakes. Oh boy!
So by the time I finally got a break, I had to get ready. It was pure chaos! When I was finished getting ready, my husband was hurrying me up and I don't even know how I decorated the cakes. You know that cakes take time to decorate but with the rushing & my husband's complaining that we are gonna be late...the cakes were decorated OK. Not great...OK. Which killed me because I am such a perfectionist and I wanted to scream. So you tell me how you like the New Years Cake. :0)~ And then when we drove to my sister in law's, my hubby's driving was making me nervous and I swore the cake wouldn't make it in one piece. But it did!!!! Cake #1 was for my sister in law's party and made it A-OK. HAHAHA! The 2011 numbers and decorations were made with Gumpaste and Fondant. This I did the day before which I think knowing that I didn't have to make this the day of, made be a little lazy to start baking. NOT GOOD!
So this is is the same recipe as the cupcakes I made for Christmas. Everyone loved the cupcakes so I made the cake. So see my previous post for the recipe or click here -----> Tiramisu Layer Cake.
In the end, everything came out GREAT! At least the cake tasted AWESOME!
Well I hope everyone has the BEST YEAR ever! Please feel free to ask me questions or comment! XOXO!
