Ace of Cakes here I come!

This week I made a cake for a friend's wedding. I have never made one before but I have always wanted to so It was my gift to our friends. I started baking on Tuesday frosted Wednesday and Thursday and finishing touches today, the wedding day. Set up went good with no mishaps. It turned out pretty good for my first one. I'm kind of a perfectionist so there were so many things I don't like but I'm sure with practice I'll get better. Everyone gave good compliments so that is reassuring and all got eaten as well. It did taste really good if I don't say so myself and I'm not even a cake lover. Gabe doesn't want cake for awhile because with every cake I baked he got to eat the top I leveled off. All in all it was fun and I love to create things. So you never know maybe I'll keep practicing and start a little side business one day. What do you all think do I have a future!

It looks great Leslie. I'd love to get some tips from you about making the frosting look so smooth on top. Did you use fondant or buttercream? It looks great!
