Learning something new... I decided to try the "petal effect" on the side of a cake. I had a birthday cake to make for our favorite babysitter, and I had carte blanche to do whatever I wanted on it. So, this is what I tried.
This white cake was actually the trial, because I was impatient, again, and the cake fell. So, I decided to just use shorty here to practice.
This was the actual birthday cake. I'm not sure that I don't like the practice one better. I have to tell you that for how pretty this cake is, it's surprisingly easy to do! It took me less than an hour to decorate this cake!
