This cake had very fun timing. I went to a beautiful wedding on Saturday (a week ago) where they served a lovely multi-layer cake with the layers exposed, very similar looking to this cake. As soon as I saw it I thought to myself, “That looks exactly like the Stack Cake I’m going to make!” Little did I know that that was the cake I had assigned myself for the following week. I had planned to make it in honor of my wedding anniversary to enjoy it with my husband.
I was excited to read that this cake is a traditional wedding cake for the south. The guests would bring one layer of cake and the family would assemble it. The more popular the bride and groom, the bigger the cake! Very interesting idea, though I’m not surprised it hasn’t stuck since it would require every guest to know how to bake a decent cake. But how perfect that the bride and groom had selected a similar type of cake for their wedding this last week? Like I said, it was fun timing.
When I added the dry goods, I somehow managed to bump my mixing bowl and some of the flour went flying. I managed to snap a photo of my little mess.
Although it tilted, All I had to do is push the layers around a bit to center it once it came time to serve it up. A little bit messy but it turned out really well. It’s always fun to eat a cake that has so many layers. And although it wasn’t chocolate cake, it also didn’t have buttercream so my husband and I both enjoyed it. I didn’t have any sort of event to bring this to so I ended up giving it to my mother-in-law to serve at their dinner friday night, where it was a big hit.
