Err...or something like that. Yes, I'm coming up to the judgment day to see if I can really bake and decorate a wedding cake. I can tell you that the baking part went peachy-keen--really. After a good sleep last night, I woke up this morning around 8:20, had a quick bite of breakfast, and started on the first batch of batter. I made 6 times the recipe I used for the previous chocolate cake, in three rounds of mixing. I used something like 20 eggs, 3 lbs of butter, more than 4 kg of brown sugar, and approximately 1.5 kg of flour. Pan dimensions are 14", 12", 10", and 8" wide.

|Me trying to mix up the last of the first batch of cake batter, and trying not to over flow the bowl.|
|The batter. Mmm, chocolate.|
|The first cake pan, ready to go in the oven.|
|Two of the cake layers baking.|
|The mess after I'd finished mixing the batter.|
|The biggest layer (14") just out of the oven.|
Tomorrow: baking enough square for 100 people.
