This is a view from the top of the cake. I started running out of frosting, so the roesettes on the top actually didn't look as nice as the ones on the bottom, unfortunately. But thats alright. It was still fun to do. I was going to write "Happy Birthday" on the sides of the cake, but my writing skills still need a LOT of improvement before I attempt it on an actual cake!
I took the Wilton cake decorating class course #1 back in February, and I think next month I might sign up for the Fondant and tiered cakes course. Since Mike is going to beone the whole month, I figure it will give me something to do. And I love the look of fondant cakes. I think it would be really cool to know how to do that. Anyway, those are my plans. I had such a great time practicing my "techniques", I think I might make some cupcakes with cool designs on them next week. I'll definitely post pictures if I do.
