And on to my very first sculpted cake- for a friend's wedding. This thing was humongous! I'm still proud of it, but man are those seahorses and starfish cheesy- and that blue:P I still like the job I did smoothing the buttercream on the shell-shape-what a p.i.t.a.. This was in my pre-historic B.F. days (before fondant).
Here are a few of my beer mug cakes; Not too bad looking; but I know at least one of them bit the dust on their car ride home. I knew NOTHING about support- these were just stacked and iced cakes- no dowels no nothing- oi vey!
"My Pet Human"
Just seeing how I was improving and learning throughout the Threadcakes contest made me want to keep pushing myself to do more, and better, cakes. It also introduced me via facebook to a lot of cool people doing awesome cakes. I have more cake friends on facebook now then regular friends- and seeing their awesome pictures makes me want to do more cakes- and most people are very helpful if you ask them questions. (I also started a fb page for this blog- you can "like" it on the upper right of this page- hint, hint)
So just keep "caking" and having fun- you will improve; I promise.
