I've finished....

Well l've done it, l've completed my first two tier Cake! How exciting, all l can say from this experience is that l can't wait to try another one. I had so much fun doing it, although l'm not the fastest l loved everything about making this. I have so much to learn.

I got the idea to use the colours from some flowers my husband bought me, I instantly fell in love with combination. I used the yellow gingham to decorate the bottom the layer or you could say hide the small imperfections of the cake. With the top layer l used some of the yellow fondant to make a ribbon.

Next week we learn how to make chocolate curls and fences, I'm having so much fun l can't wait to learn so much more.

I almost forgot to mention, that the cake was a White Chocolate Mud Cake. I hate to say it but it was a packet cake eeeek this is the first time l have ever used one. As it is part of our course we were given packet to try, and l really hate to say it but it was delicious and the best thing it didn't taste like a packet cake. In fact it was so nice that l am going to give it another try, the best thing about this cake is that you can make it up to two weeks ahead of time.

Here is a picture of the cake once l cut it.

I would love to hear your comments and suggestions, so please feel free to leave me some feedback.
