For Tay Tay's birthday this year I decided to make her a cake...now for those of you who read my blog regularly you already know that I hate to cook and I hate to bake even more, but I figured I needed to "suck it up" (in honor of you Lex) and bake the darn cake...I mean how hard could it be?

She originally wanted a plain strawberry cake, but me being the insane mother I am decided that would not do...instead I got the idea to make a three layer Neapolitan cake (you know like the ice cream). I had no idea when I started what I was getting myself into!

It all started out fine I mixed the first layer, put it in the oven, and started on the second layer...it all went downhill from there. Cakes stuck, I couldn't cut straight to save my life, and by the time all was said and done 5 hours had went by, but the cake was amazing and a huge hit!

Now for some pictures, because in true blogger fashion I can not seem to do anything anymore without grabbing my camera because I just have to blog about it.


The first layer of strawberry cake. I cut up some fresh strawberries put them in a sauce pan, added some sugar and a little water, and reduced it and made homemade strawberry preserves and then placed it between the layers...it added amazing flavor and made the cake so moist!The second layer of chocolate cake with strawberries.
So I got a little sidetracked in the middle of making the cake and I forgot to take more pictures, but this was the finished cake. It turned out so much better than I thought it would!
The kids got to it before I could get a good picture of the inside,but this is what it looked like...the picture doesn't really do it justice it actually looked so much prettier!
