I’m tired. Really, really tired.
So much to do and I can’t get enough sleep.
And that’s why this cake doesn’t look so pretty.
OK, I’m lying.
No, I’m not lying about being tired.
I really am tired.
And I’m not lying about it not being so pretty.
I’m lying about that being the reason the layers are messy.
“That” being that I’m tired.
And messy meaning not so pretty, as I stated above.
Whoa, this is getting complicated.
Are you following me?
OK, let’s start again.
The layers are messy because this is the first time I ever made a layer cake with mousse in the middle.
Phew, I feel much better now that I told you the truth.
I somehow have to figure out how to make the layers the same size.
But the good news is that it tasted really good!
Oh yeah, and that the mousse filling is ridiculously easy to make.
So please ignore the uneven layers and messy frosting (which is buttercream, by the way), and focus on how yummy it will taste if you make it yourself.
