Cathy and Alyson’s Birthday Cake

Here we have another birthday cake. The lined design on the top and sides is thanks to my handy Wilton cake comb, which is just a plastic triangle with crimped edges. The cake was a chocolate cake based on this one, with some blackcurrant liqueur replacing some of the liquid. The icing used Tofutti cream cheese, shortening, and raspberry latte syrup. I’m so sick of frostings that don’t set up properly– this time the culprit was the cream cheese (a repeat offender) and the raspberry syrup. Strawberry jam in the middle!
