OK, it started out a simple goal. Bake a cake, make some icing, decorate the cake. That's all.
But nothing is as simple as it seems. I baked a cake that I make several times a year and is a family favorite. It's a Hershey's chocolate cake and is delicious (I use buttermilk and double the icing).
wanted to add some trim to the square cake and write babygirl's name, THAT'S IT.
The problem is...I haven't decorated a cake in about 12 years. Yes, 12 years. I forgot I couldn't use regular icing to make flowers and other cute things. I had to concoct some squiggly something to go along the edges and I had to put the cake on the back of a cookie sheet because I didn't buy any board and I put it on foil because I didn't buy the pro stuff and ....overall it took longer than I thought because
But hey, I'll just show you what I did.
Overall, I was satisfied because I take delicious over pretty any day and tasty it was! Plus, she's only four (in 10 days) so to her it was marvelous! I just realized how rusty I was so it took longer. But I hung in there and got it done!
