I love baking. I love the smells, the structure of following a recipe and the mess that becomes of the kitchen. There's always a story when I am baking and it's usually describing how my kitchen got as messy as it did.
Behind the scenes, the actual structuring of the cake was pretty much a disaster. Not because of the recipe, but because of my lack of patience in waiting for the cake to cool "completely."
The frosting started to melt and the top layer caved in, eventually splitting into four uneven pieces, leaving a gaping hole in the center of the cake (you'll notice no arial shots from this shoot).
After reassembling the cake and covering myself and the entire kitchen in frosting, the shoot ended up working out pretty well. I give all the credit to the gorgeous cake stand.
