This is my newest birthday cake. I decided to put the birthday girl's initials on there. The flower and the initials were made using stencils and colored sugar.
This cake is far... really far from being of professional quality. But, I have learned a few things. 1. How to slice off the rounded top part of the layers to make the cakes lay flat. 2. The frosting needs to be stiffer for the shell borders to look their best. 3. How to use a hot knife to smooth out the frosting.
Yes, I am learning from my mistakes!
This is a cake carrier my stepdaughter gave me for Christmas. She is the same person whose birthday is tomorrow. Isn't' it cute?
I tried to make the little packages shown in yesterday's post. Not... too... good.
More practice with the shell borders:
Saturday I will make a Father's Day cake.
