My First Adventure in Cake Decorating

Well, I knew the day was coming. I've been wanting to learn to decorate cakes for awhile now. I had purchased this ladybug cake pan several months back in preperation for Tiffy's first birthday, which is tomorrow! So, today was the day to finally try my hand. I think it went pretty darn well overall. My hand is so cramped up I don't know how I'm typing, and the details are a bit crooked, but hey, that gives it "personality" right?!

I'm pretty proud of myself. It feels so good to be doing all this myself and putting that love into something for my daughter, it is so much more personal and special than a store bought cake! I look forward to working on my skills and doing birthday cakes for my kids for many years to come!

It was my husband's idea to add the text to the bottom of the cake box. I thought it was a great idea! I didn't want to write on the cake, so I was thinking of a little sign put in with a toothpick or something, but I liked his idea better!
