It was way better than the first – both the cake and frosting-wise. I’m still a bit rusty with some bits but at least the sides look better than my first try. I won’t even put up photos!
This time, the base is an orange almond butter cake with baked orange slices and some vanilla buttercream as its filling. My cake turned out thin – only 1.5 to 2 inches tall – so I had to find a way to make it higher. The filling was done with a lattice pattern since I wanted some variation when you slice it. Hopefully it’ll turn out as how I envision it to be.
Now for the pattern…that needs some thinking but I have something circular in mind with lots of citrus-y colours! More pics tomorrow night after class!
