My Sister Becky got married on Saturday 2/11/06. Here is a link to the photos. I took a cake decorating class with my mom when I was in the 7th Grade. It must have been six weeks long. We made a cake every week. I remember the teacher disliking me. Through my teen years I was the cake baker. Every family & friend birthday I was on cake duty. For my friend Diedre’s 16 birthday I made a dark purple 3 Tiered Cake. Years of goppy frosting covered delights. For at least one decade, maybe two, there were no cakes. I don’t like frosting and avoided sugar for years. As a suprise, I made Paul a powerpuff girl’s birthday cake that freaked him out. He didn’t know you could make novelty cakes and that I could do it.
We had a run of a few year of novelty cakes but nothing to recommend me as a wedding cake decorator. I made a practice cake at home. So Becky could see my skill level and not be disappointed on the big day. I made an extra 100 roses. The plan was to have a pile of them in the middle of the cake. When I put the outer few on, it looked done.
