I felt like making a cake today and since I've only been doing fondant lately I wanted to do buttercream today. I made a devil's food cake with coconut in between layers (it was yummy!). For some reason I guess I was just to eager to get started that I forgot to do a crumb layer on my chocolate cake....not a good idea!! Then my icing was too stiff for my roses and the side of my cake turned out to be a disaster (which is why you can't see it in the picture). It was so frustrating that I didn't even do the leaves. I guess this just means I need more cake to practice!
"The desire to create is one of the deepest yearnings of the human soul. No matter our talents, education, backgrounds, or abilities, we each have an inherent wish to create something that did not exist before...Creation brings deep satisfaction and fulfillment. We develop ourselves and others when we take unorganized matter into our hands and mold it into something of beauty..."~President Dieter F. Uchtdorf
