6 out of fourteen...

Sounds like a bad test score, but at least this one had a delicious result :) I was inspired by Bakerella's fourteen-layer cake and couldn't resist using up the rest of a batch of batter to make a mini version of it. I tried to go for the fourteen layers but I suppose being mini sized it couldn't handle the height so I just went as high as it would let me go without feeling like it was about to tip over.

Being an experiment I tried doing the layers two ways, though I wish I had kept to just one way, upon opening up the cake later. In any event, it was a very fun and tasty experiment and I can't wait to try it again!

be my cupcake valentine

Yay for long weekends and for Valentine's Day! I was finally able to do some baking this weekend and boy have I missed it. I shared the love, with some Valentine's cupcakes for the moms at Toddler Corner on Friday. To my surprise it was not the moms but the tots who fell head over heels in love with them and were able to each fit a whole cupcake, icing and all, inside their tiny little tummies!
