for fondant class. I did awful. So many wrinkles!! And the top tier looks like the leaning tower. And talk about a waste of time- The fondant we had to use tastes terrible so all the flowers ended up as garbage.

At least the frosting flowers get eaten...oh well

Anywho... here a couple pics of the cake before my coworkers dove in!

What do you mean, you did awful? I think it looks really good! I would love to take a cake decorating class.

Thanks. Don't get me wrong - I think it's ok - but the round cakes are much harder than the square one I did two weeks ago. I was just trying to make it look like the pic in the book - and of course, it doesn't.

And the flowers took me 13 hours to make so it seemed a waste since they just got thrown out.

I'm actually shocked that I can do any of it - I'm artisitaclly challenged.

Next class = "Fancy flowers"

The flowers look BEAUTIFUL!!! And so what if the fondant has a few wrinkles...you'll only get better at it. I'm just so impressed by the flowers!!

I think I might take a cake decorating class with a few girls from work. It looks fun!

Beautiful! I love the flowers and I really like the way the rest of the cake looks. From what you said, I'm guessing the fondant was supposed to be flattened to the cake, but I like it the way it is. It makes the cakes look like they've been draped in fabric, or something like that. Anyway...it's really lovely.

Oh it looks beautiful. The flowers must have taken forever to do. That looks like so much fun though.

I can see the things you pointed out. And I am very critical with myself on things I do....so I understand how you feel.

on the other hand

I would pay good money for that cake, it does look nice, and SOOOO much nicer than anything I could do. Granted, I usually only buy cakes from the grocery deli (frosting not fondant). It does look good and the roses are beautiful.
