Wonderful looking 3 tiered showstopper. People fought over this one at the dessert auction and it didn't disappoint. It's not just requested for Birthday's so it's really popular

Tips

Brownie baking

Brownie baking

Do your Brownies always get a little harder then you like around the outside? If they do tent the edges with a little foil and they come out so perfect!


Flat Top Cake layers

Flat Top Cake layers

Take an old dish towel and cut it into strips. Wet the strips and squeeze them out. Once you have poured your batter in the pan and patted the bottom to remove air bubbles take a wet towel strip and wrap it around the cake pan and tuck the end into the wrapped strip. (If they are not long enough attach them together with safety pins.) This will allow the cake to cook evenly and will give you more of a flat top to decorate.
