Buttercream Roses

Today was my practical test for my cake decorating class. The cake itself didnt turn out as good as i was hoping but I loved my roses. I think its the best ones that I have done so far. I got an 87% though on the whole thing.


My friend from Chick-fil-A was having her birthday and since I am incharge of them, I made her favorite... Cheesecake. But with a little twist. I sugarized Pecans and drizzled chocolate and carmel over the top. It was a big success. Funny Story:
I put this in the fridge at work so when my friend Alycia got off the clock, she could enjoy my present to her. But unfortuantely people go in and out of that freezer grabbing different things that we need for the store. One girl was reaching for a box and accidently dropped the cake. good thing she caught it... upside down with her hand. There ended up being a hand print in the middle of this dessert. When Alycia got home, she said she scrapped as much of it off as she could. luckily there was still some left for her to eat. She liked it. I wish i would have gotten a picture of the hand print. That would have been classic.

Birthday Cake

Giant Reese's Peanut Butter Cup

This is my Giant Reese's Peanut Butter Cup that I made for my friend. She loves Reese's. This is probably 10 times bigger than a normal one. I know how to make it look better for next time, but the taste... Its EXACTLY like the ones you buy at the store.
My friend asked me how to eat it... and personally I think you just have to bite into it instead of cutting it. Its wayy more fun that way.

Week Two

Well this is week number two of my cake decorating class. She showed us a few techniques that she wanted us to try. It was really fun but so frustrating because I wanted to be able to get these flowers down on how i do them right away but definately i will need more practice. Every week I learn so much about cakes. I love love love this class. Everyone should take it if they are interested in decorating cakes. Its so useful. We were able to play with colors this week. There wasnt a theme, just playing around.

My sister Missionary came home from Spain this week. I made a couple of cakes for her to come home to. I had lots of family who came. Although the black name tag cake turned everyones mouths purple, I thought it was still delicious. It was a cinnamon spice cake with a cream cheese frosting. My cousin Alex, who is also very interested in decoarting cakes as well, she helped me with these.

Week One

Week one of my Cake decorating class. I have already learned so much. Chef Maria wanted us to just do anything we wanted to our cake. It was a good way to see where everyone was at. I just played with some of the tips. I cant wait until the next time we meet.
I gave this to my family and to my friends. They are excited to get a whole cake every week.
