First Tiered Cake With Posts

I'm amazed at how different the frosting looks in two cakes. Really looks like two different colors.. live and learn. Will do all basketweave next time! Devil's food cake, chocolate buttercream icing, royal flowers. Wanted a fall look....needed to experiment with the tiers. Don't like the look of the white posts and the frosted crystal plate. Will do THAT different next time too. Amazing what a picture can teach you!!!!

I think it is beautiful. I like the difference in the shades of brown. It looks like you meant to do that!!

Interesting - when I did a chocolate basketweave it came out much darker than the same frosting done smooth. Hmmm..... Beautiful cakes! And I love the pumpkins! Are they fondant?
