This is a follow up, if you will, to my Mid-30 Birthday Cake entry. My Mocha-flavored birthday cake was supposed to be 10 inches round and more or less 4-inches high, made up of two layers of about 2 inches high each. However, the cake in one of the pans shrunk down to 9-inches. I refused to trim down the 10-inch cake to 9-inches so I ended up with 2 cakes. I did, however, divide both cakes into two layers still, so I can fill them with Italian Meringue Mocha Buttercream and a load of semi-sweet chocolate chips.
Decorations for this second cake were slices of fresh strawberries and mini marshmallows…
I couldn’t be happier that I always keep ” instant cake decorations” that I can grab anytime from the fridge and the pantry for speed cake decorating. Hee hee.
I decorated this cake 30 minutes before my family left the house to meet our friends. I, of course, shared this cake with them. And because I didn’t have to stay up late decorating, I didn’t have to worry about bumps that could have appeared the following day and needed acne treatment. *wink*

Postscript: Cheers, y’all! :D
