Cake Craft

About two years ago I took a cake decorating class at a local cooking wares store (that is sadly closed). I was a bit shakey at first, but after a few birthday cakes for friends, I'm getting better. This weekend I made two cakes that worked out really well. the first was for a housewarming/birthday/victoria day party. I decided to focus on the housewarming element of the party:

the original:

the cake:

Next day was the Bluenose marathon and the husband and a few friends ran in the relay race. They did really awesome and were 13th out of 37!

and with the bonus safari animals:

the best part about making two cakes in one weekend? cake for breakfast!
only one piece that I took home from yesterday's party and the bits from making the top flat. I think that cake for breakfast is possibly one of my most favourite things ever.

The husband is totally supportive of my cake decorating, but I think he'd prefer that our kitchen didn't end up looking like this:

killed the kitchen

(this weekend wasn't nearly as bad as some of the messes I've made in the past).

Fantastic cakes!! I have attempted making decorative cakes in the past - but they are super hard to do - the writing on your second cake is SO perfect - how did you keep your hand so steady?
