...Madison appreciates a fancy cake!
Inspired by the version on the Martha Stewart show, I took shortcuts to make my own. 2 white cake mixes, batter carefully divided by weight into 6 equal portions, then dyed with paste food colors and baked 2 at a time for about 20 minutes each. THEN... instead of making swiss meringue buttercream (which I absolutely LOVE, but didn't have the time or patience to make that day), I went to smart and final and bought a quart of "Pastry Pride" and whipped to stiff peaks, with some added vanilla, and frosted it with that instead. I'm not a huge white cake fan, so I think it would have tasted better with the swiss meringue buttercream, but everyone said they loved it. I like my cakes sweeter though.
