Also there's a cake at the end of the video. I was trying that shiny glaze that everyone is doing on buzzfeed, and the pouring was pretty much the only enjoyable part of the experience. There was definitely a woeful "Why Can't I Ever Make White Chocolate Ganache" breakdown in the kitchen the night prior to filming. Which led me to do a late run to the store for crappy buttercream frosting. Which led to not being able to smooth the cake out enough for the final pour to look any good at all.
Pretty much all cake experiences are like this, I don't know why I keep trying.
