We're about to head out to the big pre-parade parties, but I wanted to pop up a couple of pictures of the cake I'm bringing
The inspiration for this cake came from a magazine that the hostess of the party brought to me. We're a tad sick of King Cakes at this point, so we thought this would be a nice change. Still festive, but different.
It's a triple layer white cake (well the layers are dyed purple gold and green), with a rasberry filling in one layer and an almond cream layer on the other. The icing is an almond cream cheese. Yum!
There will be several little kids, so with some extra batter and frosting I made some mini cupcakes for them.
