Created in the kitchen...

Hi. Today I have a quick post with a project that was created in the kitchen. I just like to share anything creative. And even though this cake doesn't look like anything special, it did take some time to be created, and that's why I'm sharing it here. For samples, you need to stop by... I know, it may not be very convenient for everyone, but sorry, it doesn't work any other way.

I spoke with one of my friends on the phone this week, telling her that I don't remember the last time I baked a cake, and this thought just stuck in my head. The other thought "Anya why do you need a cake after all the baby showers and other celebrations" was trying to push this one out... but I guess this one was ignoring "the other one". I just had to make it.

This one has only 8 layers (usually I get up to 12), but it is pretty large in diameter. It was almost 15 inches before it was trimmed.

To make all this talking a little useful, let me share a tip. I was asked before, how do I make my layers so even (almost even this time), and the answer is - I don't. I bake them in the closest shape possible, and cut the sides after the cake is being assembled together. Here is the before picture:

I let my cake sit, to get it nice and soft, and then using a large lid, I make a mark on top of the cake, by placing lid right down. Then I cut it straight down with a sharp knife.

Anyway, I was just taking some pictures of the cake and Liana asked me to take a picture of her. She is already creating something. Every morning she will draw something before even eating her breakfast. By the way, her breakfast is usually healthier than today's...

Will be back soon with something created on the paper.
