My Postscript Birthday Cake: Mocha Chiffon with Italian Meringue Mocha Buttercream Frosting

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*

The cake recipe can be found HERE.

Postscript: Cheers, y’all! :D
