This cake was for one of my good college friends named Darryl. The reason this cake is called the Day-Rell is because for the longest time I didn't know how to spell his name, so this is how I spelled it. Don't worry, I finally learned.
Anyways, let's move on to the design and flavor of this cake. First, he likes peanut butter so that's why I went with this cake flavor. Second, recently him and his wife, one of my good friends too, bought their first house and I was inspired by their decor. Also, his favorite color is red, so I made sure to include that in the design. I struggled a little while frosting this cake because this was my first square cake and that makes it a little difficult. I also accidentally cut the triangles too big so I had to go back and trim them. As for the cake topper, I made that out of small wooden sticks I found at Michaels. It's an artistic/geo-modern "D" (for Darryl if you didn't figure that out).
This cake brought along some challeges but I am very happy with the final product. I really enjoy making these "geo-modern" cakes and hope to make more soon.
