I’ve never successfully baked a cake*.
Sad, but true. As the RHONJ/NYC/OC say… own it, gurl.
SO, when Domenica’s birthday was coming up, and I knew her favorite baked good was chocolate cake… I owned my lack of cake-baking expertise, guuurrrl (or boy). And went with what I know: cupcakes. Transformed into mini layer cakes.
Culinary genius or serious cop-out? You be the judge.
*from scratch, obvi. I am a Funfetti expert.
