I spent the better part of Saturday trying to decorate a birthday cake using "professional decorating supplies". It is so hard!!! This cake is the final product after I removed garlands from the sides that partially fell off! A product of too thin icing, I think.
The cake decorating dvd I bought was very helpful! But, I need one that is entitled, "Complete Cake Decorating for Dummies!" :o)
Oh well, I did learn a lot and am not giving up. I'm sure the next cake will be easier. I just need to hang in there, and keep working at it. I am by no means an expert seamstress, but kept working at it until I was able to make a few good quality projects. I hope to do the same with cake decorating!
Practice, practice, practice......
I have three more cakes to make this month: 2 birthdays and a Father's Day cake.
