It started with the Watermelon cake. This was my very first attempt at making a cake (other than the ones you just pull out of the oven and slap some icing on). It was for a family reunion.
It was a HIT!
What did I learn here? When you transfer a cake to and from the freezer, it sweats! .. .haha Very important information for a beginner.
Then, came the random cake for every occasion I could think of! Good thing I have a family with birthdays in almost every month of the year! Here are a few that followed:
You can see how I progressed. And, you can still see some of my mistakes here and there. I started playing around with fondant (to be used for decorations). I personally, can't stand the taste of it. I don't think it adds to the cake at ALL. I know that it's pretty and nice and smooth..but you just can't beat a classic butter cream iced cake.
I may change my mind one day..but for now.. I will take taste over looks!
