My cakes so far...

Last week I made a cake just for fun, to practice some flowers and make a cake that looked really cute in the book. It didn't look as cute as I wanted, but I learned that it is so important to make the frosting the right consistency for certain flowers. I also learned that there is a definate technique for everything, and practice makes perfect. Here are some pictures of the cake I made for fun, as well as the cake I made for class to practice on. I was in such a hurry to bake the cake and get it frosted, so it doesn't look that great. The design is also really random as I was just practicing all the things we learned in class that day, and i didn't get to finish it, oh well. I do really like the frosting color though, I will definately have to use that again. It would be really cute for a baby shower cake.

I heart those cakes!! They are darling.

Sometimes I wish I had a little girl, just so I could make her precious pink and white cakes. I guess Doug will have to fill the daughter role for now.

Thats awesome! I loved decorating cakes when my parents owned that Baskin Robbins and if I had the time and patience I would so do it again! I am excited to see the creations you come up with!!

Morgan, I'm seriously about to droul because I am sitting here hungry at work. Ah! I would like to know how to make a chocolate cake that is moist and dense. I usually try to avoid chocolate cakes because they aren't chocolatey enough and they are too fluffy. So, when you find a recipe that is to die for, maybe like a chocolate pound cake w/ a chocolate glaze or something- please post. XO!
