Happy Pink Saturday!

I love Pink Saturday. This is my sixth week participating. It's the most wonderful group of women. Everyone is fun and interesting. What a great way to begin the weekend! It doesn't get any better than pouring myself a cup of coffee and visiting with friends. I guess it's the cyber way of coffee with your friends. Thanks to Beverly of How Sweet The Sound for hosting this fabulous weekly event!!

This week I am sharing with you the cake I decorated for the final class in Wilton Course 1 of Cake Decorating. I really enjoyed these classes, so much so I signed up for Course 2 starting next Monday night. If I had a criticism of the classes it would be the amount of techniques they try to teach in a night. Last week after we finished learning the techniques, we had about 20 minutes to finish decorating our cakes. I really wanted to put roses on top of my cake. These roses are HARD! I think they'll get easier with practice but they're hard. I didn't have time to finish the cake in class. I ended up with two good or should I say acceptable roses. My plan was to make a few more at home. This has been a crazy, busy week. Finally a couple of nights ago, I tried to make a few more roses. I couldn't get the frosting the proper consistency. I had frosting everywhere. The kitchen was one big icing disaster. I made a couple of leaves and called it a cake!

I didn't like the way the cake looked. I thought if we ate a couple of pieces it would distract you from my not so beautiful decorating job. Did it work?



This week I'd like to introduce you to another one of my Pink Saturday friends, Debbie of Debbie Dabbles. Stop by her blog, you'll enjoy your time there!

  2. I like the roses. They look great even for just starting, and they are definitely much better than I could do!

  6. What's wrong with the roses? I think they look perfect!!
    You're doing a great job...so pleased to hear you signed up for another course. Keep us posted. I would LOVE to do this, but having a lot thrown at me at one time might be a problem. I kind of like to solve one problem before I go onto the next!
