Cake Decorating

Growing up my mom always made our birthday cakes and decorated them herself, well most of the time.  I can still smell the sweetness of buttercream frosting.  Mom would also do cakes for friend’s special occasions and get paid for it.  I was always so impressed that she could manage to make such beautiful creations in a house with 5 kids.

Here are a few cakes from my childhood:


The biggest challenge was when she made a wedding cake for my grandparents’ 50th anniversary…and I got to help.


With Mom as my inspiration, I decided to sign up for a cake decorating class so I am prepared for many children’s birthdays in the future.  It starts next week and I am so excited.

    Yes, I like to decorate cakes. I liked to watch my mother (Chrissy’s grandmother) make all our cakes. She made a baseball glove, baseball, a doll cake, clowns, teddy bears, and on my 16th birthday she made a rose cake. It was cover with white and pink roses. She was great at making roses and flowers, she would be up late at night making the flowers. So I’m glad Chrissy is wanting to learn how to decorate cakes. Your doing a great job on it. I even learn from you. To use a cookie cutter for a outline on the cake.
