One of my best ones yet...

Since I happen to have this picture on my work computer and frankly, it's my best cake to date, I figured I'd post it. It's a carrot cake with cream cheese frosting. Two batches of batter (remaining batter went on to become carrot cupcakes) and three batches of frosting. Thanks to the gang for their generous gift of Birthday Cakes, an incredible birthday cake cookbook.

The tier was supported by a 6" cardboard round with plastic dowels underneath it. Michael's sells the dowels and a plate that you can attach the dowels to. I had the plate, but realized that I bought an 8" plate for a 6" tier. The dowels were easily snipped with pliers, so I didn't have to resort to buy wooden dowels and saw them.
