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!
