also known as 2012, when I completed my first cakes.
Though I sometimes cringe a little bit when I look at these, I think it’s awesome to see where I started and what got me to where I am. (You’ll also notice that my picture taking skills have yet to improve. I do apologize).
Technically, I finished one cake in class before this one…it had a picture of a cupcake on it. A cupcake on a cake. What an idea. Honestly…I think it’s probably better you just imagine what it looked like.
This buttercream cake had quite the technique involved…roses, leaves, ribbon and writing!
I learned many a royal icing flower…
This is probably the most icing I’ve ever put on a cake…the basket weave!
And soon I graduated from buttercream and royal icing and it was on to fondant.
And my graduation cake?
Bam! So this is what I had presented to the social media world. And based on just these pictures, somebody actually thought I could make them a cake for their beach-themed bridal shower.
And so I did.
