The Cake that Brindi Built

This is the site

that pictured the cake

that inspired the nut

to make the cake

that took up the counters

that caused the mess (bubbling witch's cauldron)

that drove the nut

to chug a little of this

that made the nut

decide to make

a back-up cake

that bubbled over the pan

that made the house

smell like charred feet.

This is the mess

that produced the mini-b-day cake (Happy Birthday Cheryl!)

and the messy, sliding layers.


These are the freaky babies that adorned the cake

the fit so perfectly in the new Lock and Lock cake carrier.

Oh that is classic!!
The House That Jack Built used to be one of my all time childhood favorites!! I used to be able to recite it off the type of my head!
Now? Yeah. Not so much.

But didn't you have FUN? Sure looks like it! *snicker*

I saw that cake on Bakerella and thought about trying it myself, but I think now I'll pass! I can't make a pretty cake to save myself anyway. Sorry about your mess. That looks like a time to just give up and lick the chocolate icing off the floor.

It was messy - I'm not a messy baker! But now that I've made it, I would make it again now that I know what to expect! I didn't even line the pans wih parchment, just sprayed them well with Baker's Secret. The cakes popped right out. Plus, it was really impressive when finished.
