Cake! We've Got Cake!

I looked all over Google images to find the perfect Easter cake to make. I saw so many beautiful cakes but none of them were perfectly right or beyond what I would be able to make. This was the same recipe I made for my New Years day cake, I just used different colored frosting.

I began this cake around one o'clock Friday and worked on it until around 10:30 that night. I just couldn't think of what the top should be like so late at night so I stuck it in the fridge and went to bed. The next morning I got it out and worked on it until noon. I was so sick of the sight of cream cheese frosting! I was glad to be finished!:)

The frosting wasn't working well when I made the roses, the frosting wasn't thick enough. They would fall apart as I moved them from the little tool you use to make them on and onto the cake. I ended up sticking them in the freezer for a little while so they would harden and I could move them easily to the top of the cake. It worked great!

It's always a bit sad to cut into the cake after all the time you spent on it. I like the way the alternating layers look.
I had the last piece of cake this afternoon while I watched I Love Lucy. It may be odd but I like to stick my cake into the fridge so that it gets a little cold. I like it chilled!:)

Wow! That is so pretty! Those roses are beautiful! You did an amazing job!!!
My Mom got me a decorative cake stand (not sure what the name for it is) and I think I want to start making cakes and decorating them. It seems like so much fun, and I love to bake.
You did a beautiful job! It's gorgeous! I hope you had a good Easter!
