OMG CAKES!

Standard

So, Leslie, what have you been up to lately?

Hmmm? Me? Oh, nothing… JUST MAKING AMAZING CAKES.

What? Amazing cakes? I don’t buy it. Prove it. 

BAM!

OH YEAH. I made ALL OF THOSE. I’m super proud, as you can probably tell.

They’re a step up from the one I made for a friend’s baby shower only a few months ago.

We joked that I would get better and feel the need to provide her with a nicer cake when her spawn turned one.  Can I do one now? She was just born, that’s cake worthy, right? UGH. Look at that disaster. It’s like looking at a drunk sorority girl- pretty, but a disaster.

Whoa. I don’t know why I just took out my cake annoyance on drunk sorority girls. Sorry ladies, you’re lovely. Colgate Whisps are a wonderful thing after you’ve finished puking in the bushes. You got this.

So, anyway, I’ve taken on a small naked wedding cake, due this weekend, as well as a large tiered square cake in October. I’ve been learning at work, taken a couple of classes on Craftsy, youtube is super informative and just sort of practicing on my own. It’s coming along damn well if I do say so myself.

The most difficult part is that I’m super critical of my work and stepping back to admire it as if it was someone else’s is tough. Learning is fun and I’ve really enjoyed playing around with cakes at home. I’m currently procrastinating cleaning my kitchen because I have a practice cake to put together and I have yet to decide what I’m doing with it.
