So my cake decorating course is over and it wasn't what I imagined it would be but I guess that's ok. I did pick up a few tips and am pretty excited about making cakes in general. Just not the way we were taught. I'm pretty happy with how my final cake turned out. I didn't want to do it exactly like how she was showing us so I didn't get to practice some of the stuff she taught but that's ok because my sweetpeas looked like lumps.
Hannah's first (yikes!) birthday is in a few days, and since before she was born I had planned on making a baby block cake for her first party.http://www.marthastewart.com/article/baby-block-cake?lnc=e9ad3358f23ee010VgnVCM1000003d370a0aRCRD&rsc=collage_kids_more-kids-parties_p8 But now that i've worked with icing I don't want to fumble around with crumbs. And there will probably be lots because i'm making carrot cake. Also I now realize that buttercream icing is really sweet and probably wouldn't go with carrot cake very well. What's the point of having cake if it doesn't taste good? So I have come up with a new idea....but i'm not gonna tell until I make it and post a picture. That will keep everyone on the edge of their seats i'm sure!
