Whether you are having a celebration or just have a sweet tooth craving these stack cakes are a good dessert to make. I think they would make a great baby shower dessert with the pink if the gender was a girl. Or you could use blueberries to make it blue if the gender was a boy. This recipe makes 10 stacked cakes and are just the right size for guests. Enjoy!
