What a great thread!!! Thanks so much to the OP for starting it. I love looking at all the cakes and seeing skills progress....however so many of the "first cakes" are awesome.. you all have some raw talent. I am posting mine but they do not compare to what I have seen.. I learn so much from everyone here.. thanks!!

First cake for my daughter for valentines day.. just wanted to try something new..saw the puppy and had to try making it

My most recent is traveling so it was not really a finished cake so I will post the one before it. I thought it turned out well.. I really enjoyed learning how to make a shoe.

And my favorite to date... for my daughter's sweet 16
I started making cakes about a year and a half ago now

Housework makes you ugly.

It's marshmallow, not marshmellow! Aaargh, I have the strangest pet peeves!

This is such a great thread. I love seeing everyones work. The elephant cake is amazing as are so many of the others. I have been back into cakes for a while now. Probably 3 or 4 years. I loose track of timeicon_smile.gif I have learned so much from CC and my Sugar Shack DVDs. I have a whole library of her DVDs.

My first cake I have no pics of because I took the Wilton class as a teenager. But this is my first cake that got me back into cake decorating as an adult.

This cake was soon after and one of my worst...because I had serious bulge problems.

My latest cake

My most recent tiered cake (you can see I learned to fix the bulgeicon_smile.gif )

Wow... that's all I can say... there is some serious talent here... so much so that I almost hesitated to post my links! lol!! Some of those first cakes... yikes!! You guys are amazing!! I only started this in February when I decided I wanted to make my son's 3rd birthday cake.... and from then on.. I was hooked. I've learned so much from you cc'ers.... all the help and advice has been incredible.. and for that I'm forever grateful! I still have a whoooooole lot to learn.. but I can only hope that one day I can be as talented as some of you! Keep up the great work guys!!

Anyway... since February i haven't done a huge amount of cakes... but the very first was for my son's nursery bday party.. and was using the Wilton 3D chop-choo train mould... and just decorated it to resemble my son's favorite train from Chuggington. Here it is...

My first cake that I did for someone else... was also another series of firsts... first time using fondant... first time carving... It was a running shoe for my friend's husband's bday. It's based on an actual shoe he owns... I got so frustrated with the fondant cracking... but it was a great experience!

My most recent cake was for my bill's bday just last week... He loved it.. but I obviously need to learn more about stabilizing cake layers! lol! It was made out of 2- 6" cakes... each done to 3 layers with bc frosting... The cake was great... till the next day when it was bulging and falling over... thankfully it was just a cake for us at home.. but just goes to show I have a lot to learn! hehe!

Thanks so much for sharing everyone!!! And thanks to the OP for starting this thread!

post #24 of 30
This was my first tiered cake, I didn't upload it to this site because it was that bad. I'm all self taught. I did this June 2010.

I made my first wedding cake 5 months later in Nov 2010.

Another 9 months and I made my favourite cake to date in Aug 2011

Here is my first I did for a groom's cake for my younger sister's wedding. Nothing fancy, straight box mix (no add ins) and DH frosting from a can! Saw the strawberries done like this on google and tired it LOL!

And one of my most recent that even made it to the #4 spot on most saved for the day icon_biggrin.gif

I am self taught with help from CC and youtube! I decorated my first cake a year ago in August, and now I am in the process of opening a home bakery!
