It's going to be a very autumny spice cake, with butter cream frosting, and cream cheese and hazelnut fillings. This was the main inspiration picture.
It's going to be tall! Like about 40 inches high!
Last night I had a horrible nightmare that the cake fell off the table and smashed to the hardwood floor when it was rolled out at the reception. The worst part is that I was crying my eyes out, but everyone else was laughing, even the Captain. Then to make matters worse, my dog came over and started gobbling the cake up off the floor. There I was, bawling my eyes out, and everyone was laughing hysterically!
I was so upset from that dream that I called the Captain in the middle of the night and woke him up to tell him about it. But he promised he wouldn't let my cake go smashing to the floor, and that if it did dare to happen, that he wouldn't laugh and my dog wouldn't be at the reception.
Gah! The stress!
Oh! And yay! The Captain is coming into town for a couple weeks on March 11th! Yeeee! I've missed him so much.
