3 Days of Cakes

You be the judge.

Day 1:



Day 2:



Day 3:


I think it’s safe to say that I’m improving.  My carrot cake was a personal low. Those carrots look like a tye-dyed squid.

The first cake is chocolate with chocolate fudge frosting. The second is carrot cake (CAN’T YOU TELL BY THE AWESOME CARROTS ON TOP!? GEEZ!). The third is a lemon-lime pound cake.

I am pretty impressed with my buttercream rose in the center of the pound cake. In case you can’t see it clearly, here’s another shot for you to oogle. 



The funny thing about cake making class is that everyone seems to:

a) be really excited about decorating cakes
b) have prior experience decorating cakes
c) have a back up career in being a surgeon because their hands are alarmingly steady and/or they are masters of precision.

None of these things describe me, but I’m giving it my best shot. After my macabre blog post last night, I had an ‘attitude adjustment’ pep talk with myself and entered class with a renewed enthusiasm.  I think you can tell the difference between day two and day three, no? THE BUTTERCREAM IS ON TO ME!

So if anyone in the Charlotte area would like a cake for your superbowl party, send me an e-mail… I’ll be doing a lot of practicing this weekend!
