Aspiring Bakers #18: Layers of Love (April 2012) – Roundup

At last, here is the long-awaited round up for Aspiring Bakers #18 Layers of Love. I’m sure most of you are eager to see the wonderful cakes created by our creative fellow bloggers. They are stunning and gorgeous! This is definitely a bookmark-worthy page where you’ll find awesome recipes for layered cakes! In total I received 59 glorious decadent cakes! Scroll through and be amazed!

To all the bloggers who participated, thank you so much for all the time and effort you’ve contributed. I am well aware that layered cakes are not exactly the easiest to make! They can take a lot of time and planning. So, as host of this month, I just want to say that I appreciate your labours of love!  Really glad to get to know many of you through hosting the event! It’s always a pleasure to meet fellow bloggers who share the same interest.

I tried categorizing these wonderful delights as best as I could! If I have missed your email for any reason or if there are any errors in linkage, please feel free to contact me at samsumarli@gmail.com and I will be happy to make amendments. Thank you again for all your support!! I had so much fun playing host! 😉 I will definitely miss receiving emails at odd hours in the morning (due to time difference) and drooling over your delicious cakes!

You’ll probably notice that some of our fellow bloggers submitted multiple cakes! I must say I’m extremely impressed! Thank you, guys!

First of, we’ll start with Wendy’s cake which was the very first cake submitted! I was exhilarated receiving my first entry. 😀 Thanks Wendy!
