You say it's your birthday? Tips on making a better layer cake 

Say ‘Happy Birthday’ with a great layer cake
A birthday cake can be as fancy or simple as you like — and are willing to make.

By Addie Broyles

Our resident baker Melissa Martinez celebrated a birthday this week, and in honor of the occasion, she wrote a story in today's food section that has tons of tips for baking a better layered cake.

If you've ever tried to make one and ended up with a lopsided, half-crumbed, weirdly frosted monstrosity, you'll learn a lot from the article, which includes a recipe for strawberry cake and cream cheese icing, and accompanying video.

Happy baking!
