By now you probably know that I have a sweet tooth.  Sweet teeth, actually.  Over the weekend I made this layer cake.
I used the Best Birthday Cake and Instant Fudge Frosting recipes from Smitten Kitchen, which is a stellar baking/cooking blog.  For the frosting, I did not use a food processor, as she recommends.  This is mostly because I do not own a food processor.  I whipped it and whipped it good, though.

I had taken a few other pictures, but the lighting situation is dire.  The cake was fairly scrumptious, though.  I took it to work on Monday to share with co-workers. 
Sidenote: I used what I call my cake cozy, which I found here. It's one of the best things I've bought over the last six months or so.  A steal at $13.95.  It does not budge and has a built-in slicer/server.  Genius.
