A triple-layered cake is a guaranteed show-stopper, but if you're not feeding a large crowd, it's simple to reduce the quantities and make a single or double-layered cake. Sparklers to adorn it are optional, but highly recommended. The buttercream frosting is inspired by a Catherine Adams recipe.
Note If it's a hot day you may need to cool buttercream frosting over ice or in the fridge briefly to firm it up.
