Many of us are still stuck at home and are hungry for ways to pass the time and cope with life under quarantine. And what better way to bide your time at home than to perfect your cake baking and decorating skill with a layer cake? Baking a layer cake is comforting and sanity-saving and will challenge you in a way that a basic sheet cake can’t. Think tall towers, piled high with layers and layers of rich, sugar frosting and filling.
Whether you’re a chocolate lover, a lemon fan, or all about cinnamon, check out these impressive layer cakes.
