W/W – Brooke’s Birthday Cakes

Brooke’s 8th Birthday Cakes

We celebrated Brooke’s 8th birthday on Saturday. I decided to try my hand at a homemade cake with homemade icing. It’s also my first time trying to decorate a cake professionally. Usually I just throwing icing on and call it a day. Well, this time I bought Wilton tips, bags, gel coloring, and a checkerboard cake pan. I also bought one of those edible things that go on top of a cake (I didn’t have faith in myself to make Hello Kitty)

Here is the cake with white frosting that I decorated:

Hello Kitty:

Epic fail on the checkerboard. I didn’t have enough cake mix in each color so I decided to try something cool. It didn’t turn out so cool! lol

Both cakes:

    Thanks Ladies! You all make me feel better about the cakes!
    Liz, you can find them on ebay. There was no taste to it. All I could taste was the frosting. I don't know if I would do another. Maybe my icing was not moist enough but I had to pipe around it because you could see the edges.
