Thought I'd share my latest cake with you all

I started decorating cakes about 14 years ago. I took a basic decorating class at a local home decorating supply store. I mostly have done just family birthday cakes over the years. Just recently did I do one for someone who paid! That was a big deal for me. I just started with fonant/gumpaste this my third time using it. This was made for my sister's 41st birthday.

Thank You Brian I really love it (making cakes that is). This one is a carrot cake with cream cheese frosting. I don't do cakes as much as I use to however this month there will be 3. I am currently working a bbq cake for my husband's birthday this Saturday. He's a chocolate lover so it wll be a chocolate cake with mocha cream filling and some ganache in the layers as well. I will be covering ths cake with fondant. I am challenging myself I have never covered a whole cake in fondant.

there is no way anyone could come close to paying for all the hours you must have put into this beautiful creation.
