Because Love is Love
This fun one had my studio full of color.
I have been wanting to play with vertical layers for awhile now. It is one of those things that ups the wow factor as it appears like any other cake and then bazinga, look at that, there is a rainbow in the cake. This idea came from I am a baker. Instead of making a pan full of batter and cutting the rings, I used concentric cake pans to only make a single ring so I wouldn't waste a ton of batter.
The cake is a vanilla almond with apricot jam between the layers and swiss meringue buttercream frosting.
For the icing I played with both rosettes and a scallop spatula technique.
Overall, a whole lot of fun compacted into one Valentines Day cake!
