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.

Dulce De Leche Layer Cake With Sugar Shards

You have no idea how much dessert I ate the past few days... Time to shoot some healthy salad posts soon. Anyways, I happen to LOVE sweetened condensed milk. It’s what gives German chocolate cake that special something extra. If I want to treat myself (day ending in “y”) I’ll add a spoonful of it to my coffee and enjoy the morning just a little bit more. Dulce de leche is made by heating condensed milk, it’s creamy, sweet and perfect for a cake filling! The sugar glass shards I used to decorate the cake are sooooo dramatic; I love them! It was especially exciting to make them as it was the FIRST time I've made hard crack candy without suffering horrible burns! So hot, be careful, not clumsy like me am I the only one constantly burning and knocking my hands in the kitchen???

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.
