My First "Real" Cake


Meaning, I sat in on the cake decorating class Ariana is taking and learned some stuff, and spent last evening practicing roses.

So, I need to pay for the class, since clearly I'm in it, too.

There's a bake sale at Church tomorrow, so this is for that. Inside is Devil's Food, and the frosting is buttercream with butter, vanilla and almond flavoring.

Yes, I know that the decoration style is a bit out dated, but that's OK. I might use some sewing money to pay for the next class in the series.

Very pretty indeed! My husband bought me a cake decorating kit for Christmas a few years back ... someday I'd like to take a class too. I've done a few shaped cakes (mostly snowmen and bears) and used it ... but I've always wanted to learn how to do the roses and such like your pretty cake!
