Other Ways I Spend My Time: Castle in the Clouds Cake

Since I am oh-so-creative, I am often given the task of decorating cakes for my husband's side business.  He is unfortunate enough to not have a single creative bone in his body, so I'm always the default decorator. However, I am fortunate enough to have a husband who cooks AND bakes for me, so that's a pretty even trade I think!

This week's cake is chocolate, with a vanilla bean mousseline filling, with vanilla butter cream. It took us 10 hours to assemble, frost, and decorate this sucker!

It isn't perfect, I'll be the first to admit, but had someone given this cake to me for MY birthday, I think I'd be pretty happy! An entirely edible castle?? Yes, please!
