Two hobbies in one: Scrapbooking and Cake Decorating

I'm taking a cake decorating class!

I'm taking Class One- learning about buttercream frosting and the basics of making and decorating cakes. This is from our second class- I made this cake with a cupcake on top. This class is great.

My Nana taught me how to decorate cakes when I was about 10 years old. I still have some of her old tips and the cake pans she used to make my wedding cake. I wish I had some of the other things she gave me (I remember clown heads for sure). She used to sell decorated cakes when my Mom and uncle were still at home and my Papa was away working. She made some gorgeous cakes! My wedding cake was the last cake she ever decorated (I think.)

Anyway, I made this layout about my first cake in class.
