Let them eat cake!

I recently finished my first course in cake decorating.  I must say, if you have any interest in baking, it's so much fun and absolutely worth trying.  I still have a lot to learn (2 more classes in fact!), but even the basics have made cake baking/decorating so much easier and more fun!  The first cake I made on my own (outside of class) was for the birthday of a little girl that I babysit.  She was having a "Tangled" birthday party, so I made a cake that went with the theme.  I found the idea for building the tower here, and then built the cake/cupcakes around that.  The second cake (top photo) I had seen on The Pioneer Woman's website and immediately fell in love with the simplicity and elegance of the design.  My technique definitely needs some work, but I have a feeling I'll be trying it again sometime soon!


  1. If these two cakes are your initial attempts at cake decorating...I'd say you have some mad skills already!! They are both beautiful!!!

  2. Oh my goodness you have such a talent - do not give this up lady! You are way too good (honestly!)
