Featured Guest: Bubbly Nature Creations (Blog Swap)

Hello everyone!!! It's nice to meet you....My name is Rachel from Bubbly Nature Creations.  I am thrilled to be "blog swapping" here at She Wears Flowers today!

Tammy is so VERY talented and I am honored to be featured on her blog.  Tammy also came up with a super-awesome craft that she put together for my blog at
Bubbly Nature Creations so go check it out!

I am pretty certain that most people like cake... is this safe to assume?  Have you ever needed a  large cake that can feed 50 people or more?  Today I will show you how to make a big crowd pleasing cake!!!

3 Flavor Cake for a Crowd

what you will need:
3 cake mixes of different flavors with all ingredients from the box  (I went with a Neapolitan theme, but you can use any you like)
clean cardboard box
half sheet cake pan (will feed 50 ppl)
prepared buttercream icing
food coloring to match the ribbon
cardboard decorators cake board to fit cake size
piping bag
large star piping tip

Directions: prepare each cake mix separately according to the box directions and leave in separate bowls.

Grease and flour the pan!  Cut the cardboard box in thick strips that are wider than the cake pan so that they fit like this:

Pour the prepared cake mixes between the box strips. 

Take the cardboard out and you will have this!
Now bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or more... until a toothpick comes out clean.

Take your cake in the pan and place the cardboard on top and with hands on both sides (pot holders please)  flip the cake over on the board.  Place plastic wrap all over the cake and place in the freezer for at least 4 hours)  this step helps with the icing!!!

Once the cake is frozen start icing with a metal angled spatula.  Smooth as you go and dip the spatula in cold water as you go... trust me this helps!

Once the cake is iced on all sides.  Place a ribbon around the entire cake at the base. 

Color some icing in different colors to match the ribbon.  With a piping bag and large star tip start making big rosettes (just start in the middle and go around and around in a spiral) on each side of the cake like so. 

Fill it all in with each color and place a ribbon near the top.  Now write whatever you like in the middle...like Happy Birthday or Get Well Soon. 

 Now you have a real crowd pleaser.
I don't know too many people that wouldn't like a nice thick slice of delicious (and pretty) cake!

Happy Creating!

I don't know how safe that is.... Should at least cover the card board with plastid wrap or something.....

instead of cardboard, i'd maybe use the dollar store, flexible cutting mats.

Neat idea! Perhaps maybe consider using something clean and sanitary to separate that batter though in the future.
