11 layers of Happy Birthday to MEP!

I've been dying to bake this cake for some time now, so I spent Sunday night baking, layering and frosting all 11 layers for my boss's birthday. I baked each layer individually - 12 total, but only 11 made it into the cake, one on the floor - in disposable pans so I wouldn't have to wash over and over (thanks for the great tip, Bakerella).

Then stacked them with chocolate ganache

and frosted the sides with a hot fudge butter cream.

I think this cake was gone in record time - less than 45 minutes!

Wow, 11 layers; that is quite the accomplishment! That has to be some kind of record!

The cake looks absolutely delicious! Happy Birthday! Enjoy your fabulous cake!

Incredible! I love the disposable pan tip! I hope your boss appreciated this great work of food art! How did you make the fudge buttercream? That sounds wonderful. Awesome job!
