- Dirty Cake Talk

"Well I've never had trouble getting anything stiff before."

Said Friday night in regards to egg whites that apparently saw a little bit of egg yolk and were all "Oh hell no, we won't go" - meaning that buttercream icing I was trying out never went from runny egg whites to stiff frosting...even though I beat them until my arm was sore.

But seriously - THAT'S WHAT SHE SAID.

In other news: My icing may have failed but I'm still pretty awesome at making cakes.
My Easter Feaster version of a rainbow cake.  

Luckily I had enough powdered sugar on hand to whip up a regular buttercream when my first attempt failed.  Also, using an alternative icing brought the sticks of butter used down to only 4 in this version.  So, one could argue this is a "low-fat" rainbow cake.

But it still needs to get the heck out of my house.
