I Can Make It And Eat It, Too



I have to say, that experiencing 4 classes of cake decorating was super fun. Last night (last level 1 class), we learned how to make the rose. So fun. I am in shock, though, because I never had any decorating juice in me, but check out this cake! I made that! All by myself... I baked the cake, whipped the icing up, colored it, decorated it and VOILA! I start level 2 next monday. I wonder what's in store... Too fun!

I am so impressed! It looks like the picture was taken right out of a baking magazine. I have to know more about the frosting. We are having a wedding on our property here in May (my oldest son). My husband & I volunteered to make a wedding cupcake tower-with a smaller more "traditional" cake on the top...for the kids to cut. This is so inspiring!

This is totally stunning! And this was level 1? My goodness, I can't wait to see what you'll be making at the upper levels.

This is insanely pretty. You should be so proud. It's inspiring as well - just four lessons? It looks like it should have taken years to learn how to do that.

That is gorgeous! You have learned so fast. I have to tell you what my almost 6 year old told me. I always make their cakes. I have made hula girls with barbies and piped grass skirts on a graham cracker beach, gumpaste bees and flowers, flower gardens...really a bunch of stuff...none of it stunning, but it was good, and very time-consuming. Kasi asked me if I remembered that rainbow cake we saw on your blog. She wants THAT for her cake this year. Thought you would enjoy that. Have a great week, and enjoy your next cake decorating magic class =D!

Beautiful!

In an attempt to be supportive, my mother pointed out to me that you can see my personality shining through because the roses aren't centered. Was that a compliment? ;-/
