Just wanted to share a few pics of the cake practical that I completed at my cake class today.

The flowers were fun to make and so was the fabric effect on the front of the cake. I have another practical coming up so I have to practice practice practice!

Thanks for looking!

Wow! Are you planning to be a cake decorator professionally, or is it just something you do on the side? Amazing!

Wow, are those flowers edible, too?

You could totally make $$$ doing this, if you are not already.

Your talent leaves me opened mouthed!!!!! I know we have always assumed knitters were an artistic group, but who knew?

How long have you taken lessons? You are truly amazing.

I am always so happy when my layers don't slide off.....never mind decorate them........

That's a beautiful cake!!! Stunning. I'd hate to be the one to cut into it! The fabric effect is something I've never seen before. Very pretty! And the flowers seem so real! I thought they were at least silk ones. Very lovely work. Show us the next one too?? samm

:aww: Thank you all so much for your wonderful compliments! It's a real confidence booster coming from you guys! :muah:

Gardenmommy - I would like to do this to earn some extra cash. I really enjoy making and decorating cakes (I've done some in royal icing - this one is fondant) and I should be able to do wedding cakes when I'm done.

Mommo_Jo - yes, the flowers are totally edible! But most people take them off the cake and keep them for posterity.

Pink Dandelion - I'd love to! LOL! This will be an excellent reason to get married here in Barbados!

Old Knitter - I've been taking lessons for 5 weeks now. 5 more and I'll be done!

Merry Knitter - At first I wasn't sure what I was doing, but a little practice and the right materials and it was easier than I'd imagined. So... what kind of cake? LOL! This one is laced with brown rum and cherry brandy - 100% Bajan cake! LOL! :teehee:

Samm - I sure will! I have another practical in a few weeks :happydance:
