The weather was great, and with the exception of having to throw away a failed cake attempt, everything went swimmingly. The plan was to make 6 small cute cakes, however, the universe had different plans. I ended up creating a cake for each birthday girl, and a larger cake for the masses. Nobody complained, so it was a success in my books! You may have seen my pin for the scalloped icing technique that I had planned to try for this occasion. After some practice I ended up getting the hang of it, and decided to continue it onto the top of the cake as well, leading into a flower of sorts in the middle. I'm happy with how it turned out, but I'm thinking with a little bit more practice it will become one of my go-to techniques. I also wasted a bunch of time crafting pom poms out of tissue paper which at the time, I felt was a very unfortunate decision. However, after seeing the final product I'd probably go for it again. A very fun day indeed!
