Ok, I know it doesn't compare to most of the cakes on this site, but i was pretty pleased with how it turned out.
She (my mom's friend) wanted a simple looking cake for her MIL's birthday. Chocolate was a must. This is a chocolate cake with fudgy filling and chcolate buttercream (thanks Serious_Cakes!)
Anyway, thanks for looking!
Congratulations!! It looks and sounds delicious! Your buttercream is so smooth! and you letters perfect!!!
I'm sure they will love it!
I think that is just beautiful! Looks delicious...honestly, this makes me hungry for some chocolate!
Well done...love the font!
I wish I had a piece of that beautiful and delicious-looking cake right now!
Your frosting is perfect. Looks yummy!
Congrats on the first sale!
While the design is modest.. your execution is fantastic!
Very nicely done. You should feel proud.
Really really beautiful job on that icing! You should be proud of yourself!
I am always soo jealous of anyone that can write with such easy and beauty in icing...I fail at this miserably...
That looks really nice!! "I'm ready for a slice, got my coffee brewing".. Your letters look good too!! Keep up the great work, can't wait to see more pics!!
Your cake is beautiful!! You should be very proud. Congrat
its beautiful!!! and sounds super delicious
Your cake is beautiful. That frosting is so smooth--it's a old saying but--You Go Girl.When I return in my next life I am going to be able to have smooth frosting too.
You did a great job! It is a beautiful cake. I think that chocolate is hard to decorate with/ around and your simple design was lovely!
I have one small suggestion since you are starting to sell them. Make sure to cover your board. Not only does it add a nice finishing touch, it also prevents oil from seeping into the cardboard which can make it weaker. I would hate to see the board buckle when they go to put it on the table!!!
O.K. Lisa, you did a great job smoothing and I also love your writing. What was your trick for smoothing (always curious the different methods people use).
P.S. I love your avatar. So nice to see who is posting!
Great job on the decorating. Looks yummy! Congrats on your first sale!
How funny my first sale was also a round chocolate cake!!! I was so proud I wanted to post it on every corner! Great feeling isn't it? You did a great job!!!
This is a great cake! Your icing is so smooth and I love your handwriting on the cake. Looks delicious!
This is a great cake! Your writing is wonderful and the chocolate, chocolate, chocolate? YUM!
