It’s been far too long since I last updated! Rest assured, I have been continuing to hone my cake-decorating skills!
I learned to make some simple drop flowers, and I made about 35 of them… This one was the best:
I switched from pink to orange icing halfway through making them, and this one turned out really cool with an orange center and pink petals as a result.
For the cake I wanted a really bright turqoise, but rather than buying the correct colour of food colouring I tried to make my own, and in the process of trying to tweak it to perfection I ended up using an ABSURD amount of food colouring. The result was guaranteed to stain your tongue an incredibly stunning shade of blue.
Some views of the finished cake:
The shell border at the bottom looked pretty crappy, but I wasn’t using the correct icing consistency because I was so tired of working on this cake by the time I got to that part that I just wanted to finish it already.
Overall I was pretty pleased with it, although I might try recreating it with a better shade of turquoise.
