Since the wedding season ended, the request for birthday cakes is staggering. I have been catering for it for the last couple of months. Thanks to video tutorials on youtube, my trusted source of ideas and inspiration, cake decorating becomes fun, easy and satisfying.
The newest decorating technique I have learned recently is this rosette design. I have not perfected my piping skills even after years of doing it but I managed to pull it off at my first attempt. I know I still have a lot to learn and I can't wait to try them all.
Here are the finished cakes.The blue cake was made for a guest and the white one for a colleague. I made the wrong choice of color combination with the blue cake. The pink looked dull against the blue background. They probably would look better had I tinted the frosting darker. Oh well, that's one thing I need to find out.
Another wrong decision I made was using white butter icing for the pearls.
