AMan, these cakes are awesome! Yet, *nothing* compared to my parents' pancake height anniversary cake. Still can't find a picture.

You really cannot get any more horrendous than this:

My first BC cake with a star tip - I was very proud of myself. I don't think I knew about crumb coating since I can see chocolate cake between the stars. And my first fondant cake, about a month later. Had no idea you shouldn't stick wires in cakes of course. Both were in summer 2008. 

 

 

Eta: not necessarily my worst cakes, but my first cakes. I don't have pictures of my worst cakes!

A[IMG]http://cakecentral.com/content/type/61/id/3094033/width/200/height/400[/IMG] this was my stepmothers birthday cake. She had mentioned that she never had anyone make her a birthday cake. So i guessed at a recipe and made her a cake in a glass meat loaf pan :p. It turned out more like a spiced bread. I suppose you all could just look at pictures of my horrible cakes, but I am also enjoying telling you my boring stories.

AWhen did you do that cake? Was it you who invented the petally effect on the sides of cakes?!

p.s Soda can!

Anope it wasn't me. I learned that trick of the web even though I didn't have the web at the time to look up a recipe or any recipe books. Hence the spice bread lol

Found it. I was SO proud of this cake, it was the first cake (worst cake) I ever made...and it shows!! But my son was flipping out & thrilled with his "volcano".

It's so bad..so, so bad!! :D And yes, it is sitting on a tupperware lid.

lol - this is the first time I ever tried decorating a cake - I made the fondant (which I actually do like the effect I achieved with the spots) then cut the top of the bottom cake off to make a 'topsy turvy' cake and stuck the other cake on with icing. makes me laugh every time I think of it. lol couldn't get much further from the right way to do it.

At first glance, I thought you had tried to stack a cake without any support!


I`m getting the biggest kick out of all these cakes.  Wonder woman is kind of hypnotizing in her own neckless way.


I have my first half cake, I made some toppers came down with a nasty flu and yelled instructions from bed what my husband should do to bake, frost, and cover the cake.   See that I just shirked responsibility for it, haha.   But I can`t seem to find any photos of it.   It was truly wretched.  People acted like they liked it but I had no idea why...like none- LOL.

I made something like that!   It was my only practise run before my wedding cake but really I was only testing that my pans didn't leak- I forget the name for them like a springform with removable bottoms but no spring on the side.  I just baked three layers threw it together and served it.   It must`ve been about a total of 3.5 inches high.  Haha-  I didn`t take a picture though.

Have I mentioned that my husband is a trained and papered chef...he invited a bunch of cooks, and his chef at the time who used to work at one of the top hotels.   hahaha, here they study pastry too.   They were at least impressed that I bake from scratch, no comment on presentation.  LOL.

I wish I was kidding, but that's kind of what my wedding cake looked like, only a couple of years ago.  No offense to your cake though!!  I actually think its kind of cute :)

 

(no, i didn't cheap out on a cake lol... got married at an all inclusive resort, and thats what they gave me)

AThat's crazy, I hope you still had a nice day anyways. That was a funfetti cake mix baked in pizza pans, iced with a butter knife. No support, I think maybe I used a bendy straw, don't remember.

Yes!   it can be so annoying sometimes!   He has told me that you can`t really enjoy food the same way once you go to cooking school.   It sounds horrible, LOL.

I'm reading my comment again and really hope it didn't offend you kaylawaylalayla!  Honestly, I think its a cute cake as a birthday cake.  Just thought it was funny that it reminded me of my wedding cake :p

A[IMG]http://cakecentral.com/content/type/61/id/3094204/width/200/height/400[/IMG] My 1st cake. Was supposed to be my children in their new pool but didn't have a clue about anything !! The things in front are what my kids made from left over icing

AOh I know its atrocious lol. I accept it. Looking at it makes me proud because I made this cake right before I left for culinary school. It makes me happy to know that my family believed in me and how far I've come. As in now I can torte a build cakes and properly ice them and even make a decent wedding cake.

Whats up with the cake stairs? Are they stairs or just little plastic planks leading up to another cake?

 

Are they consider 'pretty'  or decorative somewhere?  Are they still considered that?

They are stairs, or at least my friend's were at her wedding in 2004. It was horrible. It is horrible and I hope to never see a cake like that again. I could not bring myself to say anything bad about the cake. She got it from Wal-Mart.

I don`t know the reason behind the fad but I remember seeing it a lot on bridal tv shows, people were going nuts for them.  Now I think (hope) they have fallen from fashion.

 

 

And I saw one on TV that had something mental like 12 bridges, and 24 little bridal party toppers, oh and some fountains...I can`t even remember how many cakes in total it had but it was a hilarious monstrosity.

Ok a bit blurry.   This was a lip gloss cakes that I layed 6 inch rounds side by side for rainbow inside.  I hated the ridges on the top - I wish I had recommended ganache instead of using buttercream..  My friend LOVED it, but it was not something I felt proud of.
