A while back, I took a few cake decorating classes at Michael's. It was really great to try something like this. I am generally not a creative nor crafty person. So the idea of decorating a cake was a huge stretch for me. The interest was brought about by my son's egg allergies. For his birthday, I had to call around to a lot of different bakeries to try to find one that was willing to try to do an egg-free cake for us and decorate it. It can be a challenge because the egg-free cakes tend to be more crumbly and harder to decorate. I figured I may need to decorate my own cakes for him.
That first year, I did finally find a bakery that was willing to do this for us at the last possible moment. Ater that I took the cake decorating classes. Here are some of the cakes that I made in class. (Not egg-free)
This is my very FIRST cake that I decorated. I ran out of time to use more colors, but I think it's pretty good for a first try. Let's hope my future attempts are better!
This was my second cake. The arms look a little funny because they sort of fell off of his body on the ride home from class.
