You guys aren't messin around.
When I placed the idea out there.. the idea that I would create three different cakes from one decorators tip... I had NO idea what I was thinking.
The most commonly requested tip was Wiltons #233.
The grass tip.
Most commonly used to make grass. In green.
And nothing else.
I was stumped.
I didn't even own one. I had to go and buy one.
(actually, I bought four, which really helped when decorating all these cakes!)
I wanted to make sure all these cakes served a purpose, so this cake is for some friends that just welcomed another baby into their lives. A sweet little boy!
I held the tip at a 90 degree angle, applied pressure and make slight circles with the tip. Then made smaller 'stacks' in the inner circles.
While I will never claim to be an artist (I have too much respect for the people that are!) I really liked how this technique came out.
I hope its self explanatory, but if not, here is my very technical descriptions.
I took the frosting and made swirly lines and stuff.
And while I can honestly tell you that all of these cakes are very easy to execute, this was probably the easiest.
And my favorite. I don't know why... maybe because it has all the colors in the rainbow? And I am obsessed with rainbows?
Thanks for pushing me beyond what I knew! I had fun making these cakes and hope that our friends and family will have fun eating them!!
So what do you think I should tackle next???
