My first attempt at cake decorating



No this isn't a card. It's a cake! It is my first attempt at cake decorating. As I am at home more now I have got hooked on watching 'Ace of Cakes' on Food Network. They make some amazing cakes.

I wanted to have a go myself at cake decorating. So today I made this mini 4" sponge which I icing with white fondant and decorated with marzipan flowers which I made with a Blossom Sugar Art die. I piped the green buttercream swirls for the flowers to sit on and also around the edges. I am very pleased with my first attempt but it was a lot hard to do that it looks on tv!
