Princess Hamburger Five-Layer Cake

Let’s just say Kelsey and I haven’t perfected the art of making a layered cake yet. The other day, we decided to bake a cake. We didn’t read any directions, we just decided to wing it. That made for half of the fun! We wanted it five layers (Kelsey’s choice) and all kids of colors (again, her call). We didn’t get rid of the ‘bubble’ on the layer that result in a fast bake time, instead we just stacked and let the cake lay where it may.

It was hilarious! No, seriously, this was the best part of baking. Allowing your four-year-old dictate the colors of the cake, not worrying about a mess and frosting with your fingers, and forgetting to tighten the lid on the sprinkles before pouring them on top of your cake. We really did have a great time baking together. After it was all done, Ryan walked in and said, “Is it supposed to look like a hamburger?” Well, no. It’s not. But since it does, we called this our Princess Hamburger Cake. And if you’re wondering, it tasted amazing.
