I am new to the cake world, I've made cakes in a square pan and just did the tub of icing on it and put a few candles but a lady down the road makes awesome cakes and I thought to myself... I can do that! UM... NO... My first attempt I didn't realize I need more than one layer of the same size square or circle so I got this super thin bottom square with this little bitty top circle... it looked like a button on a square! The second one I thought I had worked out what I was going to do, I went and bought two 8" x 3" pans and stacked them and that part worked out better but I made my icing too thin so it kinda fell off the side of the cake and then I made the top mix thicker but I couldn't get it smooth so I got this tall red circle cake that I cut out black and white fondant circles to put on and it looks like crap. I am so disappointed in myself! I know it's only my second attempt but it sucks!! Does it get better? Or am I just not cut out for great looking cakes?
