I just bought my cake pans!!! :-D I was gonna do a trial just for taste, but I might as well practice with the right shape (it's going to be a rather unique cake.... but I have 2 prof cake bakers to give me tips, thanks to my clients through work.).I will get them in 2-4 days, then do my first 'official' test! Anyone in the AZ area is welcome to taste.
I think I'm gonna make a 2-tier to start (and it's a layered cake), and that's WAYYY too much cake for just the 2 of us!
