Final cake of Cake Decorating 101

After failing miserably two weeks in a row just making the rose BASE, it turned out I wasn't too bad at making the actual roses. This is a butter pecan cake with caramel filling and frosting, topped by my first bouquet of frosting roses. Cake Decorating 102 starts in May.

Flowers and clowns with bad posture

The azaleas were pretty for the last weekend of the Azalea Trail this year. I'd never actually driven the official route before, so I was really impressed. No yard of mine will ever look this nice!

Class 3 of Cake Decorating 101 had us creating "a cute and festive clown cake that kids will love". Hasn't anyone at Wilton read It? Everyone knows clowns are pure evil. Why would I traumatize innocent children this way?
