My latest project was, at first, seemingly simple. The pictures, the directions, all straight forward and perfectly documented. Once I began the process I saw I may have bitten off more than I could chew. Luckily it all worked out and the finished cake turned out fabulous, but the time and effort involved was massive! I would now like to introduce my 14 layer cake.
It may not look too impressive from the outside, in fact it kinda resembles Bruce Bogtrotter's cake from Matilda. However once you cut it open and reveal all those little layers, the wow factor takes over and you're filled with an overwhelming sense of pride.
As much as it was a hard graft, I really enjoyed baking this masterpiece. The process wasn't actually too difficult, just time consuming and a little hectic. If you were to attempt this, I recommend you follow Bakerella's advice and use 14 disposable baking pans, rather than just buying 4 and washing your trusty springforms between each layer, like I did. I'm covered in little burns and my kitchen hasn't quite recovered, but boy was it worth it.
Thank you Bakerella, for such wonderful inspiration and detailing it in such an easy to follow manner :)
