For Easter we decided to attempt Bakerella's 14 layer cake
It actually wasn't that difficult, just time consuming. It took a good 6 hours, and sadly I didn't really like the taste of it. Daddy and Mallory thought it was good, but me and mama thought it was awful. The layers were really chewy, which I guess they have to be with so many layers, but it was kind of disappointing. HOWEVER, it did Wow people when we sliced into it!
We followed Bakerella's directions and used the recipe she followed just FYI.
So get ready for picture overload, because we documented the entire process!

The stacking process
doesn't it look like pancakes with chocolate syrup?
|all 14 layers!|
All Iced Up!
The buttercream frosting recipe is delicious,
we all were sneaking some tastes after we finished frosting the cake!

And since we took the cake to Easter lunch, I didn't manage to get a great shot of the cake, but this at least shows you the inside!
It was definitely an experience, and now we can say we've baked a 14-layer cake.. but next time I might aim lower and try 10-layers.. I want fluffier layers than this cake had!
