You want to read this post! Atleast, I want you to! I'm very excited to show you guys my cake!! I've been waiting since forever, to catch up on my missed classes, then be able to blog about this session. Now the time has finally arrived!!!
We had to decorate our cakes as we wished, using fondant and gumpaste flowers!! I made this cake about 3 months ago, and I had the comfort of being able to do it at home instead. I was still recovering during this period, and was very weak due to the sickness. I decorated this at home, keeping a relaxed pace up. It was ok to miss class, since all we had to do in the entire class was decorate!! I took a longg time to make the flowers, I don't know whether to chalk it up to the weakness, or lack of practice :P :P
One thing I missed out on, doing this at home, was taking everybody else's suggestions. Everyone in class is very helpful, and so this cake is completely, solely ME!!
So enough blabbering, and on to the cake!!!
What do you think? I want honest opinions! I was going for the marbled look on the fondant, and liked how it came out, though next time, I will try and make it more pronounced!! Yes, this cake too is pink!! Now you know my favorite color :P
I had a few problems with the carnations, in that many of its petals (?) broke off, mainly because of me. I didn't store them all too well, before placing them on the cake. It's very amateur-ish, I know! I have a LONG way to go before I get those perfect cakes, I made like a million mistakes on this one!!
Here are some more pictures -
To give you perspective!
Anyway, while I'm know this cake isn't anything spectacular, I am very proud of it nonetheless!! It's my first time (A) :)
P.S - I know this post is FILLED with exclamation marks, I just couldn't control myself! There's one again :P
