I know, it looks super messy. But it tastes really good.
I probably kind of sort of didn’t do everything perfectly, but oh well.
For example, your supposed to whip some heavy whipping cream in a chilled bowl until peaks form. Well. First I had way less whipping cream than I thought. (Only had ¼ c when I needed ¾…) So I found this milk/cornstarch substitute online, did ½ c of that with the ¼. By then the bowl wasn’t as chilled, and then I got impatient….so long story short, the frosting was way runnier than it needed to be. (as seen above) But it still tasted really good, which is the important part.
So, I also didn’t have the recommended 9 inch round pans. So, I just made one big sheet cake thing. The problem with that was getting it out of the pan in one piece.
It wasn’t sticking to the pan or anything, it was just a bigger cake and gravity is a douche.
So, I just kind of shoved the two sides together and started frosting the thing. I still cut the two halves to make it a two layer cake instead of a four layer. And like I said, the frosting was a little runny, so I was just spooning the shit on.
But, in the end, this was really good. I brought it to a little gathering at a friend’s place last night and they ate almost the entire thing!
I would like to try this one again, but actually buy the round pans and try to make it four layers.
