First "official" cake

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Ok i finally bit the bullet and did a baby shower cake for a friend. I told her of my "newness" to all this and she trusted me,partly because she knew if i ran into trouble my DH would take over( thats what i think, he he).
Its a strawberry swirl cake with a butter cake base. Everything else is fondant and NEVER again. I am happy with it, as everyone says of their cakes i can pick all the flaws, but shes happy. Hope you like it, its in my photos. My DH made the train.

It was just the stress i put myself under to get things right. The decorations were harder than i thought, i have no concept of shapes, my DH saved me big time. The cake was a hit at the shower so i am happy.

that is too cute! I might have to steal that idea for the next shower that comes along. The train is adorable!

Hey, I think that it's great to have husband and wife cake making teams. thumbs_up.gif Helps with the communication thing that is sooo needed in homes these days.
My husband and I like to brew beer at home, it's our relaxing hobbie, I do the "cooking" portion of it, and he does the cleaning and the heavy lifting for me. Oh, and he also comes up with ideas for different beers to make.
