preteen is out for my job LOL

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone I just thought I would post this picture of the cake my 12 year old neice made this weekend. This was the first time she has shown any intrest in cake decorating. She asked if I would show her how to make a rose. I showed her once and said ok I got it. She also had me drive her to WM so that she could pick out the cake she wanted. She let me turn the oven on (those were her words). She did most of the work herself. I was watching over her shoulder as she made the icing. She let me put a layer of BC but she smooth it out her self using the via paper towel with the fondant smoother. Go figure this 12 yo is out for my job. LOL. I thought I would attach the pictures of the cake. MC

Great Job! If she keeps it up, by the time she turns 18, a lot of people in your area will be out of a job. The guy I learned cake decorating from started decorating cakes when he was 10. He now owns his own store and teaches several classes a year.

I'd say..."Move Over Martha Stewart"....lol She did very well for only 12...Tell her to keep up the good work...Maybe when she gets more experience she can help you out alot in cake baking and decorating....I wish I had someone to help me like that....

WOW, she did such a wonderful job!!! My 12 year thought cake decorating was interesting and asked me to show her how to do a few things, when she didn't get it perfect right off the bat, she decided it wasn't for her! icon_lol.gif I told her she just needed to practice.....she decided she like drawing better, which she does so well and has won several school and county fair awards for. Tell your niece, she has a gift!

Her cake is really great, and shows a lot of talent! Her roses are very good! Keep her working with you, I'd love it if I had someone to work with me too. Janice

That's wonderful! I love that she was not held back by what each tip was supposed to be used for and just did what made her happy. That is the sign of a well-adjusted person!
