This class has been my attempt at life long learning (go BYU!) and streching my creative juices. I have been looking for ways to be more creative since President Dieter F. Uchtdorf's talk to the General Relief Society. I love that talk!
Since I started the class my sister introduced me to Cake Wrecks! It's a blog all about cakes. When she told me about the blog she gave me a disclaimer...I think she didn't want me to feel bad if my cakes were wrecks at first. Julie said that they only bag on "professional" cakes...you know the ones that are supposed to look good because people are paying for them. But they also feature may cakes that are great...and some of them by amatures.
Anyway, it's a great blog with posts everyday and included with the pictures is witty and down right hilarious commentary. The writer of the blog, I think her name is Jen, points out funny things that I don't even notice. She explains them in a way that makes total sense because that IS what you see...but, it makes no sense...because it's a cake or on a cake. If you want to check out Cake Wrecks click here! You should follow that blog...it's wonderful!
So now, may I introduce you to my cake wrecks? I know I'm being too hard on myself but, honestly...there is room for improvement and yet, I impressed myself with these cakes/cupcakes.
One of the first rules for cake decorating....put the message on your cake FIRST. THEN decorate around it. But, really I was just practicing my writing. Though I should practice the rules too! Right?
Here are a few more angles of this upside-down, inside-out, twisted little cake.
