A friend was getting married and she was doing a smaller celebration, but had invited me to be a witness. I wasn’t sure if she was going to have a cake, but I knew her favorite cake flavor and I wanted to make one for them, even if they were also having additional cake. So, I had this plan but didn’t tell her since I wanted it to be a surprise. I had also thought of incorporating these brownies somehow since they are one of her favorite treats but I didn’t think it would work well as a cake layer. I bought a box for the cake and it was a bit larger than I intended so I had to make a cake to match. I went from making “maybe a 3 layer 6 inch cake” to a 4 layer 8 inch cake with lots of frosting.
