And Still...More Cakes

This was my first attempt at fondant. It was okay but I really wasn't convinced of its purpose in cake decorating. I was all about the buttercream frosting :)

This was a cake I did for my papa's 70th birthday. This was my first big challenging cake on my own. And I had a blast. It was so fun using techniques that I had only read about. You can't really see in the pictures but on each of the letters of the words "happy birthday" there is a little candle made out of frosting. This is all made out of buttercream.

This is a cake for my cousins bridal shower. We used artificial flowers. The lighting in the picture isn't very good so you can't really see much of the detail on the cake. I used decreasing sizes of dots and they went up the sides of each tier.

Just another fun attempt at freehanding. If I had known about Ace of Cakes I would have attempted to shape the entire cake like a cell phone but this is what you get for a beginner :)

This was a wedding cake. The roses were light blue and dark blue. The coloring does not show up good at all because the only picture of got of this cake was a polaroid :(
