Exactly. And I didn't have two years to spare, to learn how to pipe good roses, or even two weeks to learn how to pipe bad roses, so I went with alternatives that were supposed to be flat.

 

Which is to say that right now, if I were to attempt to pipe a rose, my best effort would probably not be good enough to meet most cake decorators' definition of a bad rose.

That's why I don't like that swirl job everybody's calling roses.  It reminds me of the days when you took Wilton Beginners Class and you couldn't pipe a rose to save your life, so the instructor wanting to get thru to the next technique shows you how to swirl the thing and says.. Oh that looks great, Ha!  One of us is a dummy and my momma didn't raise no dummy.  rofl

Here are my two. The first one looked bad and it cracked so I was not to happy with it. *

 

The Santa I made for Christmas. I realized I needed to make a cake for Christmas and I had to hurry so the details are really bad .... i ended up doing it like the night before. I was scared to cover the dome in fondant so I mixed raspberry jam with store bought icing.... I made the arms and legs WAYYYYYY to big. and the icing melted. My dad actually started laughing when the head rolled off (to heavy and so not enough support). He said "that's what happens when you drink and sled" lol it was actually funny and I don't mind laughing at my self lol*

I wish I would've taken a picture of my parents 40th anniversary cake. It was awful! A one layer 14" round, split & filled with straight raspberry jam - no buttercream. Then there were pillars to hold up the 8" round two layer. I ordered a flower topper for it, and it was not iced very well.
Maybe I didn't take a picture because somehow I just knew I wouldn't want to remember it!

I just about spit y coffee out reading this and then seeing the picture. We all learn right, everyone has to start somewhere. And the best way to learn is by making mistakes! Bet you know how to support a head now:P

A compromise is the art of dividing a cake in such a way that everyone believes he has the biggest piece.

I also tried to do topsy turvy, but in the middle of it realized I skipped some crucial steps!!

sorry but i could not stop laughing but I love the colors... and your brave, I don't think I could ever make a sculpted figure

Oh I wish I'd had a camera back in my Navy days! I once decorated a cake with chocolate chips. Even used them to spell "Happy Birthday!"

Hmmm now that I think about it, I'm glad no one had a camera!

It's never "just cake!"

 

You may get a cake for $way to little but you won't get this cake!
