Update 7:30 pm

Status 12 inch tier is baked. 1/2 of all the other tiers are baked. 6" and 8" inches top layers are in the oven and the last layer (the 10") is waiting for the cakes currently in the oven to be closer to finishing before I complete the mixing.

LLT is working on cutting the cake boards (I was unable to get the sizes we wanted). frederich has bread rising and dinner is ready as soon as fuzzface00 gets here. We decided to invite him to din din since I knew he was at home alone and I was sure he wouldn't eat a good meal on his own.

Still to be done: Trimming all cake layers, making the frostings, frosting the cakes and rolling the fondant. Then LLT gets busy with her paint brush and about 8 different colors of luster dust. We also have some cupcakes to bake since we're getting about six cupcakes per batch of chocolate cake. Yes we could have added those extras together to make one of the layers but it makes the cake better if each layer comes out of a fresh batch of batter.
