Will NEVER make a cake like this again.... Next time it will be 1 cake because the 2 cake thing was a nightmare. HINT: If you're going to carve; make sure your cake is FROZEN!!! I failed to do that and paid dearly. I wasn't happy with this cake; I'm sure you real decorators can see why. BUT the family just ooh'd and ahh'd over it so I gues that's all that matters in the long run. But ME I was almost in tears over it.
