Again I am behind on posting. I made this cake the same week as the 31 dozen cupcakes I made. At work we were to have a celebration for our VP before going off on mat leave. I even got ahead of myself and made the cakes on Wednesday night to decorate on Thursday night for Friday's celebration. Then the guest of honour went into labour on Thursday.
We decided to have the celebration anyway. So, I went home on Thursday and decorated. The bottom tier was a 10" two layer cookies and cream cake and the top, chocolate with salted caramel filling. The most difficult part in decorating, getting the black stripe to go on "straight". Not a fun task. I will be avoiding doing that again any time soon! Otherwise everything else was pretty straight forward.
After displaying the cake while everyone ate lunch, it was decided that they would take the whole cake to our VP's house to be enjoyed there. I had no issue with this but I was not going to be the one to break it to the floor that there was no cake. Fortunately there was ice cream instead. :)
