So I finally got to make a cake. This is my first attempt at a stacked buttercream cake. It was for my SIL. Because I had 2 hours to decorate the cake I baked it the night before and iced and decorated it 2 hours before the birthday dinner. I am totally new at this so I had a lot of trouble with decorating it. She was pleased with it though. The bottom layer is a 12" chocolate cake and the top two cakes are 10" and 8" French Vanilla.
