So…you may remember my first attempt at the 14-layer cake a while back. Things went mostly as planned and there were no major catastrophes. Because she knew it was possible, when it came time for Kasey’s birthday last year (2009), she asked for the 14-layer cake. As fate would have it, I somehow ended up getting 15 layers out of the batter.
Of course, when talk of Kasey’s birthday celebration for this year started, there was no question in her mind that she needed a 16-layer cake. I decided I had to try and make it happen. My recipe makes 14 (or if you’re lucky 15) layers of cake, so I knew doubling the recipe would be required. Being that my Mom’s birthday is a few days before Kasey’s, I decided to use the other layers to surprise my Mom!
I began to mentally prepare for this feat a few days before the actual baking started. And, because I thought it would be fun, I documented my progress with my iPhone and Facebook.
So, here you have it…28 Layers of Cake: via the iPhone.
Day 1: mental preparation and shopping
