These are all 7” cakes…tried to accomodate everyone’s taste and everyone’s birthday.  There is a coconut cake (not Rose’s recipe)...and a Chocolate buttercake with vanilla mousseline buttercream and a maple walnut cake (both rose’s recipies).  It was a little overwhelming…but got them all done in time for the party. This cake is the maple walnut

Bill, these are wonderful, and I bet they were tasty!  I’m amazed that you had them all ready at the same time, and with no shared components.  How far in advance did you start?  And your piping looks great (yet again).  I hope you enjoyed yourself at the party, after all that work.

Bill, good to hear from you, and I can see that you are becoming a more-than-one-cake person!  Thanks for sharing.

Julie:
Two days before the party I did the coconut cake.  This cake is very dense and very moist, and if you keep it air tight in the refrigerator it will keep as long as a week.  I put it in a cake box, put the cake box in a big plastic bag and put it in the fridge.  The next day I baked and frosted the other two, and decorated all three. There wasn’t that much decoration on them, and I had some confectioners sugar/butter decorators icing in the freezer that I divided up, added food coloring to, and did the piping on all three. I finished at 2 AM. The next day, all three were transported to the party and consumed (there is still some maple walnut cake in my mother’s freezer).

Bill your cakes look wonderful (as always)!!!! Interesting size, 7”. Where did you get that size pan from? I’ve never seen a 7” round pan or maybe I just haven’t looked hard enough.

7” pans work great with 1/2 of a recipe for a 9 inch pan.  I got them at the Broadway pan handler in NYC . They also have them at NY cake an baking…but I find the people who work there difficult.  They are the best resource in NYC but I prefer the NY panhandler if at all possible.  The staff is much nicer and more helpful
