Here is what NOT to do while baking a cake, although, I did manage to salvage it!
1) Gather the needed ingredients
I chose to just use a standard box mix for this cake, for the sole reason that I know it is almost impossible to mess up :)
2) Bake the cake
Everything went okay so far, then disaster stuck...
3) Frost middle layer of cake, then put top layer on
Where I went wrong was not letting the cakes cool enough before taking them out of the pans, I thought 30 minutes was enough, but I was way wrong.
By using frosting as filling/glue, I managed to salvage the cake and give myself a major stomach ache by eating half a can of it.
This is the first time I ever tried to make rosettes with a frosting tip, I have way more respect for all the bakers on TV cake shows, it's hard! I used store bought icing tubes and attached a frosting tip to the end of it, messy and unprofessional, but they turned out okay!
Then I added flat sprinkles and of course, birthday candles!
Cake crisis averted.
