When bad things happen to good priced cake mix

Tuesday was my last cake decorating class so I decided to make a yellow cake (so that I wouldn't eat so much) with Twinkie filling. WRONG! The cake was a bust so I tried making a strawberry cake....can't go wrong with that right? WRONG! Frustrated I decided to go for the never fail chocolate. It turned out fine but I had to make an EXTRA batch of white frosting (we had to have white for class) in order to cover up any chocolate crumbs. Anyway here is the chocolate cake with chocolate cream cheese filling.
The 2 coats of frosting...I know it's not very smooth but I was tuckered out at this point.
During class we learned how to make roses hence the wedding-style decor.

Anyway I had David take the cake to work (by this point I didn't even want to hear the word cake) I guess they ate it...or threw it in the trash...either way the cake stand was empty when David returned home!

You little homemaker, you. If I didn't live so far away I would have gladly taken that cake off your hands.

Wow, the finished product looks great. I have to attempt to make Brooklyn a birthday cake this week. We'll see how that goes. Too bad you don't live here, you could make it with all your bad skills now!

The cake looks delicious- although I'm afraid to say I did not have roses like that on my wedding cake. but I agree about the rice crispies-- my wedding cake was made of rice crispy treats and tasted great.
