this cake is oh so easy and it's a BEAUT.
i made this cake for a staff christmas party, (which landed on my birthday - and turned out to be my own birthday cake ha ha). Christmas cake and Birthday cake in one! bam.

for this design, you'll need a #104 piping tip
(you can buy at Walmart or Michaels for a couple bucks)
first step: make your cake!
i made 3 layers of a red velvet cake and glued them together with some buttercream frosting.

buttercream frosting:
i tripled this recipe below for my cake!!

- 3 cups powdered sugar 
- 1 cup butter 
-1 teaspoon vanilla extract 
-1 to 2 tablespoons whipping cream 

Whisk sugar and butter on low-medium speed for around 3 minutes.  Add vanilla and cream and continue to whisk for another minute.
use the icing to glue the 3 layers of the cake together and cover evenly the outside of the cake.
let it sit in the fridge for a bit before you start piping.
then just follow the instructions in this video below:
thank you Cake Style!
