If there was a cake that everything went wrong, this one was it. I was still able to pull off a half way decent cake but this was not was I was going for. Really wanted to make something extra special for my daughter’s 30th bday so I was a little upset. She seemed happy with it. Pistachio cake (per bday girl’s request), pistachio filling, citrus smbc & MMF. Gumpaste gladiolus since it is the August birth flower with calla lilies & filler flowers.
