birthday fun

Look what I did:


Hooray! Okay, so the words are a little crooked. I knew they would be because of the space I had, but Spider and the rest of the class said I should do it anyway, and it is my birthday after all. The roses all turned out really well. Here’s a closer shot of them:


It was really hard to get any good shots of the cake and flowers. The lighting in the classroom isn’t great so the flash kept trying to go off, and our kitchen here at home isn’t any better. I used the super macro with LED mode on my point-and-shoot for the roses, which seemed to work a little better. And I do have to say that I’m pretty proud of the minimal crumbs in the icing, especially since it’s a dark chocolate cake. Come to our house on Saturday and you can try it!

    I should take a cake decorating class…whenever I frost a cake, it’s covered in crumbs.

    Thanks everybody! It was really fun. We’re taking another class next month, so hopefully I’ll have some more pictures for you soon.

    I’ve heard that you can really cut down on the crumbs by putting your cake in the freezer for a little while before you try to frost it. Next time I do a dark cake with light icing I’m going to try it!
