Not So perfect Cake for the Perfectionist



It was my Wedding Anniversary last week,Six years of Marital Bliss so i thought of baking a cake which i always try to do in all occasions and my friend suggested to bake a wedding cake this time for my Perfectionist husband, he is a Virgo so a born perfectionist..to my surprise the cake came out pretty well and got me a lot of appreciation ..though it was not so Perfect and needs improvement when i make it again.

It was inspired by a lot of reviews on the net, and my  mind was full of 1000's of ideas and want nothing to go wrong...so what i did i used a basic Martha stewart recipe for the Chocolate Cake , this is a recipe for two- 8 inch round cakes , and was sufficient for baking three, 8", 5" and 3" layers.I baked three layer of the cake in three sizes , iced them with  Swiss Buttercream Meringue Icing ,Its a wonderful icing to work with ,if you haven't tried it yet you gonna try this out for sure ,the shine and the texture is amazing and its less sugary as compared to other counterparts, will soon write a post only on it.

And  then a crumb coat , as its a chocolate cake and tend to have lot of crumbs so be careful and finished it with another coat and then chill them for few hours and stacked them together.As it was a mini wedding cake so it doesn't require much assembling and use of straws or anything else.It's pretty much simple and stacked easily and was balanced.Decorate as you love to....Isn't it easy, just a little planning and time and you are all done. ..something special for someone special.
