Kaiser Christmas Cake
This was the biggest cake project I have ever made. Jayson volunteered my services for his Christmas party. I decided to do 3 tiers, 3 layers of 8, 10, and 12 in rounds, about 5 in. high. The top two were red velvet with cream cheese, the bottom was chocolate pound cake with chocolate buttercream. To make it more festive, I used xmas cookie cutters for the bow strip. The only thing that went wrong with this one was that the royal icing at the bases melted. Other than that, I spend a good 15+ hours on this cake. Glad it was able to make it to Pasadena, boy it was heavy!
