This is the test cake I made for Lyzz's wedding in October 2001. I wanted to make sure that the pumpkin spice cake and cream cheese frosting recipies I had would work. I also had never done scrolls before. So this was a chance to practice and make sure I could do everything, and do it well. I took this cake to the people I work with at school and made them promise me they would give me their honest opinions. Turned out that the icing was perfect; not too sweet. However, everyone said the cake was a little too 'bready'. So, Blake and I went to the bookstore and sat on the floor researching recipes. Just by reading them I could determine if they would be better or not. Then I went home and made a little test cake. It was much lighter and fluffier - perfect for a wedding cake!
