As most of you know, I'm still brand new to this cake decorating stuff. I volunteered to make a baby shower cake so I could get more practice in. And for the first time, the cake turned out like I wanted! Possibly cuter than I thought! It still has its flaws, but I'm so proud!
(It's the Ladybug cake in my photos)
You did an excellent job!!!! I love the ladiebugs. My advice is to use the Viva paper or the rolling pin methods, which you can find here, to give you icing a smooth look.
Smooth icing is a real challenge for me. No matter what I do, or what I try, it's just.. ugh. That was actually pretty smooth for me!
Don't get me wrong!!!!!! Yours is more than fine, but I was just saying that if you follow those advices your icing will look like fondant!!
Great job! I'm a new cake maker too! I'm not sure I could do that!! Hats off to you!!
No, no. I wasn't being defensive or anything. I know that my icing is holding my cakes back. I just cannot get my icing smooth. I need to research some more and see if I can come up with some better ideas to try!
These are what I was talking about
Thanks for the link! I'll have to try the roller idea!
