Mr. Pinterest

You saw how far I took the birthday cake.

When the going gets tough the tough call in Poppa Leo.

So here is the cake under construction:

And at the party:

A good manager knows when to delegate.

Have a great week, talk soon.

The cake looks great! I love how tall it is.

I didn't notice anyone else mention it - the secret to the layers is gel food coloring. Liquid won't make them bright enough and you end up with a pastel effect. You can get gel food colors at Michaels or Hobby Lobby. I'm sure amazon sells them too. They make a huge difference and you won't need much!
