The cake was chocolate. I made it in a mini three tier cake pan set that we have. I wasn't sure how much cake batter to put in each little pan. As you can see, the initial outcome was not so good looking. :-)
Well, the good thing is that cake can be fixed up and mistakes hidden by trimming it and adding some icing. The mini cake pan set came with a mini decorating kit. I had tried our other decorating kit before, and it was too hard to use. This one was just cheap, so I figured it would be even harder to use so I had never used it before. This time I decided to give it a try. It was actually pretty easy to use and worked a lot better than the other one. The cake didn't turn out too bad.
Our friend, Naomi, took a picture of Christy with her cake and then kindly sent it to us. So here is a picture of the birthday girl with her cake.
Christy, you are a wonderful sister! I hope you had a wonderful birthday!
