Happy Dissertation!

My friend, Lauren, recently filed her dissertation and officially became a Dr.! So as a present, I made this, since writing a dissertation is most definitely deserving of a chocolate cake.

Chocolate cake
Pistachio-Orange Swiss Meringue Buttercream
Orange Buttercream

(The texture on the side of the cake was done with a silicone pastry brush and purple royal icing. It's actually a pretty cool technique--I'll probably try it again at some point.)
