Sorry This Event Already Ended
A few days ago Triumph Dining contacted me telling me about a Challenge they are having this August. Triumph Dining is giving away FREE American Dining Cards until the end of August. There’s absolutely no purchase necessary. http://www.triumphdining.com/freediningcard.aspx to participate and get a free dining card (or click Here). The purpose of this give-away is to raise money for Celiac Disease Awareness. If 15,000 people sign up for free dining cards, Triumph Dining will make a $10,000 donation in support of a national celiac disease awareness campaign. When they hit their goal, they'll ask you and the gluten free community to help us decide which non-profit(s) receives the donation. They're trying to build awareness on two fronts: With 15,000 more dining cards on the street, they'll be educating more restaurants about the gluten free diet faster. And, with $10,000 funding behind a national campaign, they can diagnose and educate more Celiacs. The FREE dining card offer is available at http://www.triumphdining.com/freediningcard.aspx and they'll be posting regular progress reports on their blog at http://blog.triumphdining.com. This is a great opportunity for the Gluten Free world so don't pass it up! Click on the link (or copy and paste the address into your address or URL bar) and get your FREE Gluten Free Dining Card! Send this link to all your Gluten Free Friends and get them to help buy requesting a Dining Card, bringing Triumph Dining one card closer to completing their challenge! Your Fellow Blogger, Dylan

This was the first time I have made three different flavors of cake for the one cake. I have not even tested one of these cake recipes before hand.
The cake consisted of (from bottom to top) two layers of yellow vanilla cake with a layer of chocolate frosting between. Then two layers of chocolate cake with a layer of vanilla butter cream frosting between. Last but not least two small strawberry layers of cake with the chocolate frosting between.
I love this picture because you can see all the layers of cake and icing!
Since I have not blogged in so long, I am going to do a recap of the cakes and crumb orders I have gotten over the past few months.
I got a surprise order for someone for Mother's day. Since it was spring/early summer all the flowers were blooming in our garden giving me the chance to do some heavy decorating. My mom made the funky card from the client wishing her daughter a happy mother's day. This cake turned out really beautiful with the flower decorations and once it was boxed and wrapped with ribbon I attached a bundle of assorted flowers.
This cake was a simple moist vanilla cake with an amazing chocolate frosting!
This cake was not an order but a birthday gift to one of my favorite teachers. I decorated it with spirals in bright pastel colors.
This cake consists of a chocolate cake with cream cheese frosting, which by the way pipes really well!
Every year my school has a Maypole*/Grandparent's day which the grandparents of the community and of the school are invited to a celebratory meal. I was asked to make a cake for the event! That night before I boxed up the cake and got it ready for the trip to the school the next morning. The trip worked out fine without any problem and I got the cake to the Kitchen and was not late for class!
The cake is a lemon sheet cake with cream cheese frosting. (I like my cream cheese frosting!)
