DIY Tiered Cakes (Why the heck not?!)
Oh come on… u saw the pics, and what was your first reaction? ‘I think I can do this!’ and guess what??? You’re right! Not that you couldn’t do it before with the more traditional way of layering cakes, but somehow these molds make it look easier eh?
The intimidation of approaching something that looks so daunting can keep us away from trying new things. But start small! As you can see above, you can start with mini cakes and work yourself up to that chic glam fruit cake… eventually!
Just imagine the faces of your friends and family if you do this for them. They are going to think you’re some kind of overnight culinary genius! teehee… Love it!
