Cakes

I've been thinking a lot about cake decorating recently, and how I'd like to brush up on my skills and start making cakes again. This is my own wedding cake, that my mother and I made, back in 2001. I've only made one more wedding cake since then, in 2002, for my dear friend Joy. Life got pretty of busy after that, and I kind of stopped making cakes all together, with the exception of birthday cakes for my boys. Lately, though, I've been reading all sorts of cake decorating blogs, and I am just amazed at the beautiful and unique cakes that people create. I stumbled upon a blog last week, written by a homemaker, and her cakes were amazing. I'm really kicking myself though, because I failed to bookmark it, and of course, I can't find it again. Oh well.

I originally took cake decorating classes about 16 years ago (gulp), and a lot has changed since then. Decorating techniques are so much more elaborate and artistic now, and I really would like to learn them. I found some Wilton classes at Michael's in Boise, so now I just need to get myself signed up.
