      I baked a cake YEARS ago that looked EXACTLY like yours! I'm getting a little nostalgic now...

      Amazing. I thought this was cupcakes at first when I saw the thumbnail, but I'm glad to see it something much more reasonable if not just as time consuming.

      Awesome!! I should have done this for my American house mate who was feeling a little homesick here in London...

      It's my Best Birthday Cake with some adjustments I'm testing in a 9x13 pan. Cream cheese frosting. Easy as pie.

      I see, so it is baked, cream cheese icing and berries on top. Stunning! :)

      Realistically, if I put this on the site at all, it wouldn't be until next July (dated already!) so a few tips for those of you who want to conquer it sooner: I made the two layer cake in one 9x13 pan. Totally works/fits, and the baking time was exactly the same as a 9-inch round (35 minutes) however, next time I'd 3/4 the recipe as it felt a bit thick. I like a higher frosting: cake ratio. The recipe should easily divide into quarters as it's about 4 cups flour, 4 eggs, etc.

      If you can find white raspberries, well, you're totally awesome. For red ones, though, put the "white" rows down first. Powder them up. Continue with the red ones. I made a mess of the blueberries/stars but next time would just do full rows of blue blueberries (unpowdered) and count the diamond shapes between them as the stars.
