Cake+Frosting= Goodness…..

Cake! Who doesn’t love it????? Add some homemade frosting and it’s a million times better.

So a frosted cake is delicious and fairly easy to make, until you want to really want to decorate it… My Grandma, my mom’s Mom, used to professionally decorate cakes, and she also taught some classes. Well my sister and I wanted to learn, so Amy and I stayed up at my Grandparents for a few days so my grandma could teach us.


My grandma bought Amy and I both tips, a nail and food coloring. :)


To start my Grandma gave us each a bowl of frosting and a piece of wax paper, we piped our flowers onto there for practice.


Drop flowers, Easy! :D


With out telling you can you tell what these flowers are??? hahaha


These are supposed to be Pansies… :/


Then we have Roses! Easy! Who would have thought that these beautiful flowers would be the easiest flowers we’d attempt. :D


Cray Sister!!!! ;P


Next were Daisies and Daffodils…



Hehehehe, Amy trying to make a new frosting bag…


By the end of the first day we had created an army of frosted flowers. :)

Day 2….


The second day we got to decorate our own cakes… To smooth the frosting out we had to dip the knife into a bowl of hot water and then run it across the cake.


We added trims, flowers and leaves…


TA-DA! :D Amy’s is on the left and mine on the right…


Amy did a really cool shell boarder on the bottom, I didn’t quite prefect that one… hahaha


I stuck with the stars! :)


Then of course after we were all done we HAD to eat our beautiful creations. :)

Ohhh! I'm so jealous! I always wanted to learn how to do cake decorating the right way! Maybe now you can teach me! Great job, ladies, they look excellent.

I'm so glad you girls learned how to cake decorate! I learned while working in a bakery at Alberstons and became their only cake decorator for several years. It is a skill I still use to this day. I have retired doing wedding cakes, but hope to teach Stephanie how to decorate as well.
