Since I started decorating cakes for people besides my kids, I've been getting a lot of requests from friends and family. I love these cakes because I can experiment with designs and do whatever I want...and since these customers aren't paying, I'm a lot less stressed in the process. This year my Grandmother is staying in NY for the winter, so I made her a cake for her New Year's Eve birthday party. This is my first attempt at a topsy turvy cake using new cake pans I received for MY birthday. Not bad for a first attempt.
