A few months ago I was flipping through one of those fancy food magazines and saw a cake in the shape of a drum. It was adorable, but I also knew looking at the directions and the long list of ingredients that it was not designed to be easily replicated unless you were a trained pastry chef. Forget that!
I immediately knew this would be a perfect kids’ birthday cake, so I decided to make a much simpler version for a friend of mine’s son who was turning 7. What little boy wouldn’t want a birthday cake in the shape of a drum?
