I am still making an attempt to participate in the Ultimate Blog Challenge. I am doing what I can, and that is what counts the most to me. Today I decided to take a cue from the web and post one of my favorite "Firsts".
I chose to write about the first wedding cake I ever made. I chose this because although it was no where near perfect, I was extremely excited and happy with how it turned out. I love cake decorating, and I aspire to own my own cake studio some day just much as I aspire to be a great food blogger some day.
I made this cake for a very dear friend of mine DeJoire'. We have been friends for 8 years, and I was so excited to make her wedding and groom's cake. It was about 4 years ago now, and my skills have improved quite a bit over the past few years, but I was very proud of this cake.
Have you ever felt so happy and proud about something that you knew wasn't perfect, but you gave it your all and did your best, so you still felt great about it? That's how I felt about this cake. I loved it, my friend loved it because it was more than she asked for and that was all I cared about really, pleasing one of my best friends.
This was the groom's cake!!!
Looking back now, I can't believe that I actually put those fake flowers on it, because I have a big pet peeve about that now (only edible flowers and accents-mostly). Let's also not get started on the cake boards that were not properly covered, :-). I honestly still have issues with fondant work sometimes, but cake decorating isn't an easy skill to learn, but I get a little better with each and I definitely learn something with every new cake I make.
What are some of your favorite "firsts"? Please feel free to share in the comment section below so that I don't feel so lonely.
Thanks for stopping by.
Have a beautiful, blessed day!!!
