I had the privilege of baking a cake for my friend Taryn's son Dylan. He turned 8 years old and wanted a Captain America cake for his birthday. The filling is chocolate and cherry. I made a basic chocolate cake, chocolate Swiss meringue buttercream and a homemade cherry filling.
I've been trying to take better photos of my finished cakes. I never really focused on this before but I know I need to, if only for the sake of this blog! I used two foam core boards and played around with angles and lighting. Here's Julian, a.k.a. my lighting specialist.
