A few nights ago, Eli came home with a surprise for me. A few beginning cake decorating supplies! I have been totally into all of the cake decorating shows and have been wanting to do a little decorating myself. So this was a pretty exciting gift! I decided to make some cupcakes and vanilla buttercream icing and test out my new supplies. I had a lot of fun, but being a novice, it was slow going. My buttercream kept melting on me because I was taking so long.
Next time I'll make some fondant and start playing around with that. My goal is to feel confident enough to make the twins' birthday cakes this year...and have them look a whole lot better than last year! :) The irony, here, is that I don't really like cake all that much! I didn't even try a single cupcake! At least I know this new hobby won't go straight to my hips. :) Here are the results of my first round of cake decorating.
Yeah...I'm pretty sure I'm the next "Cake Boss." :)
