This was the first cake I had ever made. It was my grandparents 50th wedding anniversary. We decided to make a 4 tier cake. All was going fine until my mother called and said that she was worried that there wouldn't be enough cake. I left the tiers sitting on the dining room table and ran out the door to Marsh (two blocks away) to buy some box cakes to make a sheet cake. When I came back home and was unlocking my front door, my golden retriever walked to the door with his tail between his legs. Oops, was he in the house? I started saying, "Please, let it be the trash. Please, let it be the trash." I came into the dining room and there on my dining room table was one tier completely licked clean! He didn't eat a single bit of cake, just licked the icing off! Hum....no one would know if I just iced it again Just kidding! I had to bake a new tier and I still made it on time Sometime, I will figure out how to post pictures (I have no digital camera) and I will let you all see the finished product!
