Thank you Anne. The sprinkles started to fall on it’s own. I thought it would be easier to put them on the sides than try to clean it up. I like how it turned out too. We had a # 4 candle that matched the sprinkles.
I couldn’t distinguish where the uneven section was after it was complete. It really turned out well.
I love the cream cheese frosting. My husband prefers it to anything else. But, one of the guests thought the cake was too rich. But, she has been dieting and hasn’t had sweets in a long time.
My husband brought cake to work with him today. I’m sure I will get the raves I always get when I make any of Rose’s recipes.
I used Rose’s cake strips. Both tops were not domed. The uneven base must have been my error. I always find it hard to make a batter level.
Thank you for the tip! One of the bases was perfectly straight. The next time I make a layer cake, I will know how to align the bases should they be uneven.
