What a great thread!!! Thanks so much to the OP for starting it. I love looking at all the cakes and seeing skills progress....however so many of the "first cakes" are awesome.. you all have some raw talent. I am posting mine but they do not compare to what I have seen.. I learn so much from everyone here.. thanks!!

My most recent is traveling so it was not really a finished cake so I will post the one before it. I thought it turned out well.. I really enjoyed learning how to make a shoe.

This is such a great thread. I love seeing everyones work. The elephant cake is amazing as are so many of the others. I have been back into cakes for a while now. Probably 3 or 4 years. I loose track of timeicon_smile.gif I have learned so much from CC and my Sugar Shack DVDs. I have a whole library of her DVDs.

My first cake I have no pics of because I took the Wilton class as a teenager. But this is my first cake that got me back into cake decorating as an adult.

Wow... that's all I can say... there is some serious talent here... so much so that I almost hesitated to post my links! lol!! Some of those first cakes... yikes!! You guys are amazing!! I only started this in February when I decided I wanted to make my son's 3rd birthday cake.... and from then on.. I was hooked. I've learned so much from you cc'ers.... all the help and advice has been incredible.. and for that I'm forever grateful! I still have a whoooooole lot to learn.. but I can only hope that one day I can be as talented as some of you! Keep up the great work guys!!

Anyway... since February i haven't done a huge amount of cakes... but the very first was for my son's nursery bday party.. and was using the Wilton 3D chop-choo train mould... and just decorated it to resemble my son's favorite train from Chuggington. Here it is...
http://cakecentral.com/gallery/2148551

My first cake that I did for someone else... was also another series of firsts... first time using fondant... first time carving... It was a running shoe for my friend's husband's bday. It's based on an actual shoe he owns... I got so frustrated with the fondant cracking... but it was a great experience!
http://cakecentral.com/gallery/2148585

My most recent cake was for my bill's bday just last week... He loved it.. but I obviously need to learn more about stabilizing cake layers! lol! It was made out of 2- 6" cakes... each done to 3 layers with bc frosting... The cake was great... till the next day when it was bulging and falling over... thankfully it was just a cake for us at home.. but just goes to show I have a lot to learn! hehe!

This was my first tiered cake, I didn't upload it to this site because it was that bad. I'm all self taught. I did this June 2010.

I made my first wedding cake 5 months later in Nov 2010.

Here is my first I did for a groom's cake for my younger sister's wedding. Nothing fancy, straight box mix (no add ins) and DH frosting from a can! Saw the strawberries done like this on google and tired it LOL!
