So recently I’ve been wanting to get into cake decorating, and last Wednesday I finally did it! I decorated my very first cake! Here’s some pictures I took of it (it’s my attempt at an ombre petal cake):
Now, I know it’s obviously not ombre. I didn’t want to do anything too fancy just yet. It’s just plain ole chocolate frosting. (Lol, it actually looks like a big oreo :P) Anyway, I didn’t make the cake. Target had these ‘Take & Decorate’ cakes that just had a white crumb coat on it. Luckily I got to buy one of the marble cakes that they had, and it tasted pretty good. And if I do say so myself, I think the design turned out pretty well for my first time! 😀
Here’s a funny story to go along with the pics: So I decorated it at like 9 o’clock at night, and I was already tired, so at first I put the frosting in a sandwich baggy. That didn’t turn out so well, so I switched it to one of the decorating bags (with the decorating tips) that I had and put the frosting in there. Well, I still had the decorating tip out and I decided to look at the instructions AFTER the fact. Needless to say I had to get something to push the tip into the bag, with the frosting already in there! Like I said, I was tired and apparently not thinking straight! I obviously knew how to use those, but my brain decided to throw away that information when I finally needed it. -_-
If anyone wants to give this a try, here are some things that I looked at before I decorated my cake!
What did you think about the cake? Anyone else into cake decorating (or wants to get into it)? Let me know! Until next time, darlings! ❤
