Double Birthday Cakes!

My sister just celebrated her birthday and I wanted to make her a special cake :) She chose the Tomboy cake out of the darling Miette cookbook. The cakes in this cookbook are so adorable--they are six inch cakes, slightly smaller, rich and delicious! The recipes make 2 cakes, so you can always freeze one, but I decided to go with 2 since they were small.

The cake is double chocolate, which was nice and moist and rich. I did a raspberry buttercream frosting and an orange buttercream (and even topped it with my own homemade orange zest!). They were quite a bit of work, so if you are interested in the recipe, please leave me a comment and I'd be happy to send it your way.
