Cake Decorating

From Cake Boss to Cupcake Wars, America has been immersed in the art of cake decorating. Yesterday, my mom and I decided to jump on the bandwagon and experience cake decorating first-hand. We first watched the instructor roll out fondant and then showed the class how to place it smoothly on the cake. He showed us a number of beginner tips and tricks for decorating the cake once the fondant was on it.

It was a really great experience and my mom and I were able to spend some quality time together. Here is a picture of my final result:

Next time I would love to do some sort of quilted pattern on the cake! I think it would look beautiful.
