Never one to shy away from publicizing my failures, missteps and adventures in the kitchen, I decided on Monday to film my attempt at frosting a layer cake. Having only done this a few times before, it was … quite a production. But as long as I can learn lessons from the experience (and eat the mistakes!) then that’s the important thing, right?
The cake turned out looking okay, if a little lopsided.
The reason for the cake was my birthday, which I share with several other people. I celebrated in conjunction with Jason, an Australian friend who turned thirty this year.

Jason and I have blown out the candles and prepare to cut the cake. Speaking of the September Issue, you can probably tell that one of us is a bit more of the fashionista.
Oh, the sad thing is that I made a mango coulis to go with this, poured it into a squeeze bottle and placed the bottle into the refrigerator to chill, subsequently forgetting to serve it with the cake. D’oh!
