This cake was much better in my head when I dreamed it up!! I made the mistake of using the curved plate...also, I put the cake in the fridge overnite after i finished and it must have shrunk cause the velvet ribbons were all too loose the next day. Very disappointing. It was a chocolate coffee cake with vanilla buttercream icing. I made this before I knew how to build up square corners...I did my best with the limited knowledge I had!!
