We're having a potluck tomorrow. Any reason to overeat, my office will take. Anyway, I was commissioned to make these, given two ingredients and a puppy dog look: strawberry puree and jalapeno lime vodka. Challenge accepted!

I think the person who asked for these is going to want to run away to Vegas with me.

To read about what inspired this pound cake project, and for the variation recipes, please see my blog posts: part 1 (#1-4), part 2 (#5-8), and part 3 (#9-12).
Thanks for reading, and I hope you have a chance to enjoy the noms!
I am throwing my parents a surprise 25th anniversary party and I wanted to do a replica of their wedding cake. I've talked to one bakery over at Holiday Market and they said it's about $5 a serving. I've also sent information to another baker that a friend has used but am still waiting to hear back from her. The original bakery closed this past winter all of the sudden.
But my aunt thinks I should do the cake to save some money since I am an only child and paying for everything myself. IF I was to do this cake how much mix would I need and buttercream? I was thinking to do the bottom layer as one cake carved and then another tier on that and then the one with the pillars for my parents to save. So maybe a 12, 8 & 6?
Or is anyone here a baker in the Metro Detroit area that could possibly do the cake?
