When I first began making layer cakes, I was a nervous wreck. They used to scare me to death because I was always worried about messing up. But overtime with patience and practice I grew more comfortable with the process. Now, I actually really love making layer cakes with buttercream (there are links to several at the bottom of this post). The only thing is that they take a really long time to make. And sometimes, I just want some to eat some cake. You know?
