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

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!

AThey may not be the style now, but at least they are proper 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

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.

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.

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.
