My Final Cake

So, I decorated my final cake for my cake class. I had so much fun and really did learn alot. I am a visual person, so seeing our teacher do some of the techniques was all I needed to get me started. It was well worth the $17 it cost for the class!! Here's my cake, everything handmade. I'm still getting the hang of frosting the cake super smooth before decorating, but I like how it turned out. I have BIG plans for my daughter's birthday party in September!!



My favorite technique by far is the shell border around the bottom and top rim of the cake. It really gives it that professional finishing touch. So remember, if you need a cake in the near future, i'm your girl!! You can pay me in scrappy supplies!!! Or a nice raspberry lemondrop martini would be good too...

So neat. My mom decorates cakes as a little side job. She really enjoys it. I don't have the patience...I tried once and realized it's MUCH harder than it looks!

Also, those cupcakes are just adorable!
