Layer Cakes

A Note From Tessa Huff

Layer cakes are the perfect combination of cake, filling, and frosting. I’m talking sky-high confections to be enjoyed at nearly any birthday, special celebration, dinner party, and even a casual Tuesday afternoon. They are the quintessential desserts for combing different flavors and textures to create one mouth-watering treat. Frosted with silky, smooth buttercream or left icing-less, layer cakes also provide a blank canvas for edible garnishes, swirls of buttercream, decorative sugar work, and more! From classics like Red Velvet with cream cheese icing and buttermilk cake with fluffy fudge frosting to the latest trends like “naked” cakes, “drip” cakes, and those covered in sprinkles, there is always a reason to celebrate with a slice of layer cake.

S'mores Layer Cake With Toasted Marshmallow Topping

Hey everybody! Ive been a bit out of the loop lately. Trying to get the new place finished and move in. Today is actually moving day after about seven consecutive days that were supposed to be moving days!!! I can’t wait to get to work in my new kitchen, there’s a loooong backlist of things I want to make. But in the meantime I wanted to share one of my favorite videos from 2016. My take on a s’mores cake has chocolate buttercream frosting, home-made marshmallow fluff, a tender graham cracker cake, drizzled dark chocolate and toasted graham cracker crumble.

Honey Mascarpone Layer Cake With Berries

For the new year I wanted to make a healthier cake, so I whipped up this honey yogurt cake, which is so dreamy in my book… It’s sweetened with honey and has a mix of wheat and almond flour, coconut oil, a touch of vanilla, and a dash of lemon. I love it because it’s not too sweet! just right with great depth of flavor. I was going to pair this with a zesty lemon buttercream but decided it would be a bit overpowering. What I really wanted was to pile whipped cream on top and dig in, but as many of you know, whipped cream is not stable and is just not well suited for a layer cake. The solution? A mascarpone whipped cream mixture which is so good I can’t even describe with words how creamy and light it is, it pairs perfectly with all the berries I jammed into it. Did I mention that I ate an entire cake over the course of a day during the recipe development?

Vanilla London Fog Cake With Ruffle Frosting

Vanilla London Fog Cake! This surprisingly fluffy cake happens to be gluten-free and that bold, blue backdrop that I'm still not totally sure about. No, I am not going gluten-free, but I am all about pushing boundaries and getting out of my creative comfort zone for 2017! Recipe adapted from the amazing @the_bojon_gourmet #alternativebakerbook!
