Cake #1

Well this is my cake. It is a lot of work to make the icing and then decorate it! I thought icing wouldn't take that long to make but I was wrong - two hours later! Trying to get the right color takes quite a while. KB, my friend, who is taking the class with me, helped me get the colors just right. My hand hurt so bad after only doing 4 leaves! It's hard to make those little squeezes while making sure your hand is steady and making sure you are doing it right! Anyway it was fun. Bailey loved seeing the cake and kept saying "Happy Birthday cake, Mommy!

KB and I were definitely the over achievers in our class. We were suppose to do a rainbow but I did fall leaves and KB made a fleur-de-lis. The teacher told us we didn't have to do the rainbow so we didn't.

Well it's just the first but I thought it turned out pretty good. I'm not ready for Charm City Cakes yet but I've got two more classes and then here I come! Watch out Chef Duff! Right.

Impressive Fall cake, Lizzie. Who says you are not ready for Charm City? Pretty soon you'll be building 4 foot cakes too. =) Have fun with your class!
