I was inspired by cakes made by sealey and labmom and found out how to do the bubbles from Tami Utley's excellent tutorial, although it took me four tries to get the bubbles to come out. I'm a total ditz at icing in buttercream, but my daughter, who this cake was for, doesn't like fondant. It's not great, but it's the best I've ever done - I'll get it eventually. Only the top tier is real cake. It's a WASC made with Bailey's that has Bailey's spooned over the leveled layers and frosted in Bailey's buttercream. Surprisingly enough, after all that, the taste was not overpowering but just right.
