More decorating practice...

I decided to make Dorie's Perfect Party Cake (from Baking: From My Home to Yours) for an occasion at work, and use it as a chance to practice more cake decorating (see my first attempts here). I had lots of issues with icing consistency (I used the Wilton buttercream recipe, sub-ing half the shortening for butter), and it was about 85 degrees in my kitchen. Hopefully the next time around, my roses will stop falling over. :-)


  1. I don't see any falling roses, but I do see a really great cake!

  2. Looks great! I love the purple!

  3. It is beautiful, you did an excellent job!
