Trying this again. Here are pictures of my first cake that I decorated "outside" of the pan. I start my Wilton classes next week but I wanted to make this for my dd's 4th birthday. It certainly doesn't look professional but she was thrilled.

Looks like a good start. The cakes are level, the writing is even, and it is creative. Can't ask for much more. icon_biggrin.gifthumbs_up.gif

Thanks JoAnn. I had some issues. Several things didn't turn out like I planned. I will definitely be coming here for advice (plus I figured out a few things as I screwed up -lol).

Basketlacey............that's where I learned the most from me doing it wrong the first time. No matter what someone tells you we still have to learn to do it our way. Trial and error is my best trainer. Your off to a GREAT start!!!

Thanks everyone!

I had a ball making the cake (even though it took hours icon_biggrin.gif ) That is what counts the most, right?

I definitely need more practice with getting the icing smooth. I wish someone would do the sculpting and icing and I could just decorate icon_lol.gif I am hoping that will improve with time. And like I said, I learned a few valuable lessons.

Everyone has to start somewhere and I think you're off to a great start! You certainly took on a challenge as well! You have the idea and obviously the creativity and the want of a challenge to keep you going. You'll love the class! Good luck, and Happy Belated B'day to your daughter!

On the home page of this site there is a tutorial on how to get smooth icing. It's called the Melvira Method. I use this method and my cakes come out smoothe everytime! I love it!
