Mom had asked for just pizza, no cake for her birthday party last night because she wanted to get dessert from Bova's after a few drinks downtown. No cake? Yeah right! Instead of doing no cake, I just did a little one. And yes, we still got late night dessert from Bova's too...best cannoli and lobster tails in the city!
So for mom's mini cake, I decided to go with a yellow theme and tried to have the layers reflect a gradient in color. The yellow food coloring didn't work out as well as I had hoped...the darker layers look very similar in color, but I think it still came out very pretty.
PS - Yes, you read right...Bailey's Irish Cream filling....this is a little hint to a signature-Stacey treat that I'll detail in an upcoming post. Get excited!!
