Step 2: Frost large stack of cakes with homemade ganache.
Step 3: Frost ganache covered cake with homemade buttercream, decorate, and add sparkler candles.
Step 4: Look like a complete fool 'cause everyone finishes singing the birthday song long before the sparklers burn out so all the guests just keep hootin' and hollerin' and staring at you (note to self: sparklers cannot be blown out and unless you like prolonged attention, they are not a good idea).
Step 5: Enjoy. Even if it isn't as pretty as the picture on the internet.
Step 6: Explain to the cops that you're just having a dessert party and that people were only loud when you were trying to blow out the sparklers and talk them out of giving you a $100 fine.
Seriously, the cops showed up to my little sabbath day dessert party. I tried to offer them some 14 layer cake and diet Dr. Pepper, but they weren't interested.

It has 14 layers. 14 LAYERS!!!
I'll let you know how it goes- unless it's a complete failure, in which case I'll never mention it again and pretend like I never tried. Just like the time I ran for president in the 6th grade and lost to a boy who promised Taco Bell to the whole school (this might be the first time I've mentioned that failure since then). Can we say "fear of failure?"

Imagine my delight when we picked up the couch cushions to find a noise maker and confetti- remnants from our New Year's party (as well as a pen, a Q-tip, a bunch of hair, and a few other things that made me dryheave).
