Creating the B-52 Cake – Chocolate Elvis Layer

I completed the baking portion of the B-52 cake tonight. I feel an overwhelming sense of relief, but I’m so exhausted that I can barely spell. Everything hurts, including my brain. I also managed to do the first layer of vanilla buttercream frosting on the Cinnamon Spice & Everything Nice Layer and the Classic Neopolitan Layer. Thankfully that went pretty smoothly and actually somewhat easier than frosting my normal-sized cakes – not entirely sure why. I have to frost the Chocolate Elvis Layer, then stack them all, and frost the entire thing.

I find myself really wishing I had more witnesses to the process. I don’t think that the final reveal will come anywhere close to indicating the amount of work that went into it. I don’t think anyone who hasn’t been in this kitchen with me the whole time could possibly understand the magnitude of this undertaking. I think I’m going to be completely underwhelmed when it’s all over, but maybe that’s the exhaustion talking.

Sorry the images aren’t in gallery form. An internal server error happened while I was inserting the gallery. I just don’t have the energy to re-upload and re-insert and re-optimize those images. I’ll do it later. Right now, I just desperately want to get out of this apron and scrub all the sugar and butter off of me. I’m sure you all understand.

I promise I’ll be much less grumpy and much more exuberant when it’s over. 🙂
