This week involved another "first" for me...my very first topsy turvy cake! I spent some time scouring the Internet for tips on how to do it, and after reading countless tutorials, I was ready to take the leap!! It was challenging and fun and stressful and overwhelming and, in the end, very rewarding to finally see the finished product! But I certainly got a few hairs from this one. :) It was a chocolate cake with chocolate filling, and then I frosted it with buttercream and decorated it with fondant stripes, dots, and pennants. Oh yeah, and a ring of jelly beans around each layer. I think the little circus animals turned out even more adorable than I'd hoped - I felt a little sad when I had to give them away! But I'm glad that it made someone else very happy on his special day...Happy 2nd Birthday, William!!
