I guess I only make cakes for other people's special occasions. Friends' birthdays, bake sales, Christmas parties, etc. I made a cake over the weekend for a Teacher Appreciation Dinner at the boys' school. They have this dinner every year, and I've made a cake each time. The theme changes, and this year was The Wild West. I had no idea what to do, so I just made a huge cake and put a cow pattern on it. It turned out pretty well. Here's a photo.
The top layer is chocolate, and the bottom is yellow. And there's caramel frosting in between. :)
