My number one customer asked me to do a simple cake for her husband using whipped icing.
I messed it up a bit right when I was almost done(as usual!)

This is a quick practice cake I did the other night. I ended up giving it to one of my friends who loves Hello Kitty as a thank you for babysitting.
This was my first character cut-out cake, I iced it really well(first coat around all the cuts, hardest part, I think,) but I messed up a bit with the feautures. She sorta looks like a Wow Wow Wubzy character! My husband said she looks kinda like Snoopy. Overall, I think she's cute!
I am struggling to pull this page together!
Aside of that, I am also struggling for a creative name for my cake business!
I had my first official order from my friend Teresa. It was a tiered cake for her awesome daughter's 21st birthday! It was a first on many levels. I have never made a tier cake, never made any frosting other than chocolate, peanut butter, and this mixture of coolwhip and sour cream(REALLY good) so buttercream was a first..
Fondant...as pretty as it is I don't know how people eat it. I consider it blasphemous to completely cover a cake with the horrid mess. It's a shame since it looks so pretty, but I haven't met one person who actually eats it! I will only use it to make decorations and such, unless I am asked, of course! Finally when I was piecing it all together, the fondant stripes started cracking, not to mention the icing had set and they wouldn't stick! I had to paint frosting to the back of the stripes before applying them. For so many firsts I think it came out alright!
