I created this as a gift for a good friend’s little girl for her first birthday. I had free reign, was just told she loves elephants. First time mixing deep and shallow tiers and first time stacking cakes with only difference between the tier.
Bake a candy-covered cake. I found this recipe for a candy chocolate cake with Swiss meringue buttercream from Just Love Cookin’ and I haven’t been able to get it out of my mind. For all you Boot Campers out there, consider this your cheat day.
