Twin Peaks Log Lady Cake [Gluten Free]

My log saw something last night.  Since we’re rewatching Twin Peaks, I decided to combine coffee and pie into a cake shaped like Log Lady’s log.

The 2014 Fandom Birthday Cake Season kicks off with a little something from Sailor Moon: This is the first of two requests I’ve gotten for Sailor Moon cakes this year, and because my friend is a member of the Haruka Tenou/Sailor Uranus Appreciation Club (as am I) I decided to do a cake version of her “lip…
