Hey guys!


So I just decorated and served my first decorated cake this weekend, and it wouldn't have been possible without y'alls help. I know it's a little sloppy, the 2 wasn't centered, the 'h' in ruhaan had to be redone so it's brighter, the clouds on the second tier were a little messy, and so on. But my nephew loved it, and I had people at the party chowing down on the cake asking me to bake their kids future cakes. So I think it went pretty okay.


I wouldn't have made it past the butter cream if it weren't for you guys constantly giving me advice and tips on what and what not to do. I can only get better from here, right?

 Impressive. And far more ambitious than anything I've ever attempted. Is this truly your first?

Thanks guys! And yes hbquikcomjamesl, it's my first decorated cake icon_biggrin.gif I've tinkered with cakes before but only focused on the recipe, not the design.

That's REALLY good for it being your first time! I haven't even made my first cake yet, but wow, there's a lot of detail there - great job!

That was quite an undertaking for a *first* cake:)  What a great job you did.

I;d hate to show my 1st cake!

That is truly amazing and very ambitious for a first cake. I really like the "fence" around the bottom. You did a great job - keep up the good work.

Great Cake!! I'm so shocked it is your first... I would have had no idea you were a beginner!
