Colby's mom's birthday was this week so I was asked to make her a cake! And of course I wanted to, I need the practice! So this is what I came up with for her! It turned out cute and I was quite pleased with it, for my first square tiered cake!
So this cake was definitely a learning experiment. My nephew Coleton turned 3 and they wanted a geotrax cake for him. So I had it all envisioned out in my mind of what I wanted to do. Of course, it's all easier said than done. It didn't quite go as I had expected and turned out to be a little harder than I'd hoped for. And it didn't help when the fondant I used was too soft, kept tearing and just was not very workable. I will never use that kind again! But in the end, if you don't look too close, it's pretty cute!
For my hubby's 30th birthday, I created my first masterpiece! I had so much fun doing it, although it took all day painting and shaping! But it turned out awesome and I was quite proud! He loved it! He even cut his "stump" with an electric saw....it was funny! Anyway, I have been taking courses on cake decorating and am so excited to get started on making these my own little hobby/business. So, the practice begins! Soon, I hope to open up shop and sell! So, keep posted on my cakes and creations!
And, since my baby girl's birthday is the day after my hubby's, I made her first birthday cake too! My first time doing a basket weave and royal icing flowers, it turned out really cute and girly!
My name is Amber - the cake diva as my hubby calls me :) I have always loved making cakes and watching those glamorous cake shows on TV. So I decided to go with the dream of making my own and hopefully have my own little shop, probably out of my house for now. Anyway, I just finished all of Wilton's 4 courses on cake decorating and am venturing out into the wild on my own. As you can see, these are my firsts cakes....as time goes on, and the more I make and practice, I hope to only get better. It's been so fun learning new techniques and my favorite making gumpaste flowers. My goal is to make and sell cakes of all sizes, shapes and varieties; from birthdays, to weddings, to anniversary, groom's cakes, baby and bridal showers, you name it, I will do it!
