    So not going to be able to eat it all, hahaha! It is two layers :p

    Thanks Ma! I'll have to get someone else to wrangle the gladwrap because I can't use it at all. I so much as look at a roll of gladwrap and it tangles up of its own accord. :(

    Nice looking cake there, Azrael.

    I was going to go a different meme to carry the presentation of my cake, but I changed it at the last minute.

    I refuse to be intimidated by the entries so far! Besides, I've already bought all the ingredients. :p

    Aussie: I really like the colour gradient in your cake. It makes it look visually cool as well as tasty.

    Took the rest of my cake into work yesterday. My boss described it as "Edible Orgasm"

    Reluctantly I think I will have to sit this one out :( I have a huge number of guests coming over tomorrow and will be spending the rest of today prepping food for tomorrow. No time to bake a cake!

    My cake is in the oven and I am about ready to pass out. I've never done such an elaborate attempt at baking, and I'm sure it is pretty simple to all y'all! I had to improvise a few things and use a bit of common sense to adapt the recipes to what I want, so I apologise in advance for any culinary faux pas that are in my entry!

    Now I just wait for the suckers to bake so I can decorate and get my entry in tonight.

    AND I still need to make dinner. :wired:

    Okay, I can't be fucked finishing it tonight. It is 8:30 and they are still cooling. I am hoping that I have read the end time properly in that the bake-off ends tomorrow night, not tonight, because my cake won't be finished until tomorrow. :(

    I might end up sitting this one out myself, and I bought all the ingredients and everything! We shall see what tomorrow holds as to whether I can get it all done.

    My entry is up. I never want to see this cake again, and pretty much just gave half of it to my parents to get rid of it. It tastes amazing, but I am sick of looking at it. :(

    I had so much go wrong, that I doubted I'd ever get it in. I did, but it is pretty ugly, hahaha. Oh well, it is done and entered now. :)
