Jen Going On 30

Cat "ordered" a cake from me for her cousin's birthday (this past Saturday, 5/21). After much discussion, from time capsules to Jacob's abs, we settled on something simple and meaningful.

I was inspired by one of i am baker's cakes.

Originally, I had planned to put an hourglass in the middle of the cake, because one idea Cat had was to make an hourglass cake. However, I didn't plan my red food coloring usage properly, so I ran out after making two layers. So I just kept it simple by making a colorless layer to make the cake taller, and cut each layer in half to create more layers. It made the inside more colorful too.

My crazy work station.

I was told to make the 30th large.

Cat sent me a bunch of quotes and inside jokes to decorate the cake with.

I should have written smaller

so things wouldn't look so crowded.

Jen likes grey

but pink is starting to grow on her.

The birthday girl, Jen :)

mmm, cake.

Did I mention it was six layers?
