Here is my Easter cake! I made it for an Easter party-thing, I decided since I signed up to bring dessert I might as well make a cake! This cake was a new experience for me. For one, I've never made a true sheet cake before (very easy) and I've always wanted to try a Frozen Buttercream Transfer (I will post the tutorial later) and I got to try it out on this cake. It wasn't too hard and turned out pretty cute I think. Besides the buttercream transfer, it was a piece of cake decorating the rest (ha. I'm hilarious huh).
I totally spaced it while picking out the cake mixes...I originally wanted to have it all white cake with key lime filling, but I accidentally bought all different cake mixes! Duh. So I improvised and used chocolate for the bottom and white cake for the top, with strawberry filling. Sounds yummy, right? Not really. The flavors just didn't mix. And I couldn't even taste the filling, even though it tasted delicious when I tried it by itself. Also I really hate the buttercream recipe I have (I use the Betty Crocker recipe). I made the frosting from scratch, and I think it is just nauseatingly sweet. So much for all my hard work! Bleeeech. I need to find a new recipe that is a bit more mild. Sorry about the not-so-good tasting cake, for those of you who were subjected to it! I think it turned out cute enough for being just a sheet cake though.
