I am not making a cake tonight but will be tomorrow. I need to make a wedding shower cake for a girl at my parent's church. She is fairly young (early 20's) and is getting married. I have no idea what kind of design to use...does anybody have any good ideas?? I will be start this tomorrow morning or so and I haven't made up my mind! Oh, her colors are light pink and green...I want something modern if possible.
I have a Gingerbread man themed tree! I've done it for about 3 years now and I still love it. I also decorate all over my house with Gingerbread/cookie decor. On my tree I have Gingerbread men ornaments and then I also took cookie cutters and tied them with raffia to hang on the tree! I have a Gingerbread tree topper as well as a GB tree skirt!

Can anyone help me??

I have always wanted to learn how to decorate cakes and I always thought it would be fun to make wedding cakes when I got older. On my husband's 29th birthday (3 yrs ago) I made him a guitar cake. It was my first cake to make and I did it even before I took cake classes (didn't even know what I was doing!!) but after making it, I really wanted to take classes! Several years ago, I wanted my BFF at the time to come with me to a Wilton class at Michaels to learn how, but she...
Cool! That is a neat idea!!
Yeah sort of...I am making myself a "belated" birthday cake. We have some family in town so I thought it would be a good time to make cake! My neice just wants to learn how to decorate cakes so I thought it would be fun for her to make and decorate her own cake!
