Weekly Photo Challenge: Layers

Layers.  Layers of cake.  Seemed an easy theme to respond to – and I’m sure the layers of cake will be posted by many other bloggers.

The only problem with this week’s challenge is knowing when to stop adding photos of layers.

And then there’s the question of whether or not to have the photos “peopled” or “unpeopled”.


This took FIVE hours to make.  Seriously.   It has lived in my freezer for a time.  Not a cake but created in a bundt pan with many layers of jello, some layers mixed with yogurt to get the different tint.  When I taught visual arts I always had to remind the students the  how to make a tint by adding white.           No worries,this item it was not ingested.

  1. I’ll have a piece of each of those cakes…except the first – LOL

  4. All right — now I’m really hungry for wedding cake. Might have to go to Moio’s Bakery – one place where I know I can get wedding cake by the slice.
    Or – maybe any good cake will do!!!!
