I am wanting to try out some new techniques with either fondant or buttercream, but something I can do on a small scale, maybe one tier 6 or 8in??? Any ideas, photos, or tutorials ya'll would like to share! icon_lol.gif I went back and fourth in my head for about 2 weeks now on if I would make my own cake, or since its my birthday, hire someone else to do it and take a break lol! Decided its a great excuse to eat cake, and play with it too icon_biggrin.gif

Why not a hot pink and black zebra number with a big feather ontop...and then you can sing happy birthday to yourself and say Yeah me!!

Like the roses cake idea too. If you've never done that one! i never have either but would love to know how yours turns out! icon_smile.gif

The roses cake is super romantic and soft. The zebra is wow and edgy so depends how you feel!!! icon_biggrin.gif

I just did a rose cake and it was super fun! It's quick and easy and looks uber fancy. I made a gumpaste initial and cover it with sanding sugar for a glittery topper. It was fun icon_smile.gif

For my birthday cake, I said I was going to do something I wanted to try. I even thought about doing the pregnant belly cake, but we were taking it somewhere and my husband said he would not eat it. So I found the turtle cake I did in my pictures. I found it with fondant and said I was doing that one in fondant. Once again DH said he wouldn't eat that either so I did the turtle in buttercream. Tasted good but not exactly what I wanted. So he wanted a carved car cake for his birthday and he got the dragracing cake in my photos. He complained I didn't make him what he wanted, I said oh well. Eat your cake. I say look at pictures and see what you would really like to try.
