best birthday cake ever

I spent the last 2 days (literally, I ran out of icing and had to wait until the next day to go buy more to finish) making this beauty
 I originally saw this cake here and have been looking for an excuse to make it ever since.  I finally decided it was time!  It took a lot of time but it was totally worth it.  Next time I will probably just use box white cake and tubs of icing.  The cake in this recipe was ok, but I'm all about anything to simplify the process and the icing I made from her recipe sucked, so I ended up using tubs of icing for this anyways (6 of them!)

it's a horrible photo, but you can see the reaction on the birthday girls face as I cut into it =)
 
 her adorable son loved it!

 seriously, this is the coolest cake I've ever seen and I'm so incredibly proud that I made it!


If you're looking for a "wow" desert, this is definitely it!  You could even change the colors and make it for almost any occasion.

I have made this cake a million times and love it each time. What did you use to color the cake, the colors really pop

I saw something like that in one of my cookbooks but I was entirely too intimidated to try it! You did great!!
