Thursday afternoon Mom told us that we had a cake decorating DVD and an e-book to review. Lydia and I were very excited (Deanna and Megan were at work with Dad). We watched it right away and loved it.
It started by telling about the icing tips, and what they are for then it gave a recipe for butter cream icing, and lots of tips on coloring and mixing the icing, writing on the cake, and how to make borders.
I never used to know that it was so easy to make things like roses, leaves, shell borders and she even tells how to make little rosebuds.
I have never decorated a cake before except once when I helped Mom ( I was 3yo ) so I was rather pleased with what I came out with (Click to see the full sized image) :
I was a little discouraged when a paper plate blew onto the cake in the middle of decorating it but it was my first try, and I haven’t even read the e-book yet. Here is a link to the blog where she post all of her cakes and how to make them.
