Have Your Cake and Eat it Too.

A friend and I completed Class I of our cake decorating course. I have to admit that I am so thankful that I took course I. I thought, "I've done some before, maybe I can quiz out and move straight to course II." So SO thankful I did not. Now I know why my cakes looked like this: not smooth, not flat, the picture not even.




(Gabby's 7th birthday cake)
So after the course I'll post one with my new found skills and hopefully there will be a measurable improvement. And all the ladies that send me messages last night that want me to teach you when I'm done, you may want to wait til I post a final project here in a couple of weeks before you sign up for my class after seeing the above picture. :)

My mom: Did you pay for that cake?
Me: No. I made it myself.
My mom: Good. I'm glad you didn't pay someone for that.

Shut up!! You are doing AWESOME! I wanted to sign up, just bad timing. Keep sharing!!!

By the way, that was a playful "shut up." Let's be clear. :) And your bumpy cake...Do you know how many can't even make a good looking bumpy cake like you? Once again, you are awesome. Okay, I'll stop commenting now.

You ARE awesome!! That cake is great. Have you seen any of my cakes?? You asked if there's anything I'm not good at... uhh...well, cake-making is definitely at the top of the long list!

So glad you are taking it the class, though, just for enjoyment and to improve your already-awesome-skills.

(btw, I have your wipes.)

Ah, thanks ladies. I thought maybe I just had on rose colored glasses. I didn't think my cakes were too bad, but now I'm learning how to up my game. :) Maybe if I have any real talent for this I can do some peddling.

Gee whiz mom! That cake looked great! As Adelia said, there are many that can't even begin to do what you have done. Can't wait to see what your cakes look like now!
