Cake !!!!!!!

Last Friday was my granddad's 85th Birthday. I decided to make him a four layer cake. I have been wanting to make this particular cake for months! I turned out pretty good. Unfortunately, I only got a sliver of a piece, due to me having a cough for three, going on four weeks. Luckily, for me, we do have some left-overs in the freezer.
(In case anyone wanted to know, my cough is almost gone now, but more on that later)

The cake before I added the mini chocolate chips.
Yes, the cake is in my refrigerator. Now you know what the second shelf looks like. :)

The cake right before we cut it. By the way mini chocolate chips are really hard to put on a cake
when it has a whipped cream frosting that gets softer the longer it sits out on the counter.

Top of the cake, and I did not take this picture... if I had the picture would have been centered.

Really scary cat..... it doesn't really have anything to do with my cake. No, the cat did not get a piece of the cake.

    That looks really good Sarah. I know how hard it can be to try and put things on the sides of cakes, Coconut is really hard to get on.

    That looks so good!!!!
    Sorry about your cough.
    You think 3 weeks going on 4 weeks is bad? Thats nothin'. I have mine for 3 months going on 4 months.
    But I am getting better now.
    I just didn't take care of it in the beginning stages of it and then it kinda got out of control.
    Mom gives me all kinds of nasty stuff to take. I have to drink this green stuff throughout the day, it tastes really nasty.

    Hey Sarah, at first I didn't look at who posted so I began reading the 'cake making documentary' thinking William was writing it... that was a little scarry! :)

    Looks like a masterpiece, (yeah, I'm actually complimenting you!! :D).

    Well, thanks a lot! You're the one I got my cough from! And what's the point of posting pics of a really good looking cake if none of the rest of us can have any????

    -My 2 cents

    Wow this is a good day!!!
    I got a compliment from Abigail, except because she was so nice to me today she will probably put ice down my back or something like that.
    Just kidding :)

    Candace, I did not give you that cough, my doctor said I was not contagious. er.. but maybe he meant I was not contagious anymore!! And once you get over your cough, you are welcome to come to my house and help me finish the cake that is in the freezer. (If it is still there)

    Anja, I imagine that coconut would be hard to put on a cake. It was taking to long, putting a couple of chips on at a time, so I just started throwing them on. My mom couldn't figure out what I was doing at first.

    Liv, I feel your pain.... coughing is no fun. But I did get a new name at of all this coughing. My new name is Rick... you kinda have to watch Bleak House...what is the name of the green stuff you have to drink every day... maybe it will help me. :)

    Btw... this is Sarah commenting
    I am actually at work... don't I have a great really I am just waiting on a student...
