Sweet Emmy!

This cake was a joy to do. You see it was for a very special little girl, Emmy!
She was turning 5 and wanted a pretty pink and purple cake with polka dots! So girly! I love those kinds of cakes! Her momma also put in an order for 22 cupcakes for Emmy to take to school and share with her friends. Lots of fun I say!

It was kind of nerve wracking sending this cake on its way. I always get nervous. You never know what people will think, not to mention if they will like how it tastes!
I did receive some great news from her mom though, after they picked up the cake, Emmy said, "My cake is not good, not great, but BRILLIANT!"
Needless to say, I slept well knowing that!!

Cake Decorating Class

So! I have been taking a cake decorating class, at my not so local Micheal's.

You see I drive about a half hour so that I can take cake decorating classes from Edna De La Cruz! She is pretty much amazing at what she does! Click here to see her website. You can also watch her how to videos on you tube for some AWESOME pointers!

I have mentioned a few times how hard it is to work with butter cream. I am learning! This was my first cake for class. Nothing to amazing, but very fun to do! Edna says it takes about a year to master butter cream...ugh!

This is the second cake! Having fun with color! on the inside!
