A nod to the olden days…

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!

Neon never looked so good.

And soon I graduated from buttercream and royal icing and it was on to fondant.

And my graduation cake?

Daisies!

Daisies!

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.

The rest, as they say, is history. Now I’ve done wedding cakes, birthday cakes, and cakes for all sorts of occasions. A few cupcakes too!
