This morning was spent covered in Wilton buttercream. I made a few different colors, including chocolate to make the shower cake for my friend Michelle's daughter Tishauna. Michelle's husband is deployed as well and since she's been doing this for the last 14 years I often call her my Army Wife-Coach.
I'm pretty happy with the way it came it, I do need some work on the side stripes. When we cut it open later I'll try to catch a pic of that too, I made a chocolate and vanilla checkerboard with chocolate mousse filling for the inside. Hopefully it will be as pretty inside as out.
