what a difference a year makes

Today is my dear husband’s 44th birthday! For the occasion, I baked the same cake I made him last yearCook’s Illustrated‘s Devil’s Food Layer Cake with Whipped Cream Frosting. The difference between last year’s cake and this year’s are 3 1/2 Wilton courses.

This year’s cake

The whipped cream isn’t as easy to work with as buttercream icing, but I think I did a decent job. I made the flowers in Course 2 and dried them for future use (I have boxes and boxes!). The leaves are buttercream icing tinted with moss green icing tint.
