This weekend had me busy making cake, mini cupcakes and tons of cake bites for a shower honoring mommy-to-be and her baby girl!
The vanilla cake was filled with fresh raspberry buttercream and frosted in vanilla buttercream.
(Below is the guest of honor :) I was disappointed when the icing "puckered" a little on the side, but it wasn't too bad I guess... (see the bottom tier)
Thank you Becky for taking pictures for me! (In my mad rush to get things dropped off, I decided to forget trying to get any good ones myself) Anyway, from what I hear, the shower was a success and the Mama-to-be was very pleased :)
Now... back to my "puckered" icing problem. Is there some recipe for buttercream that goes on more smoothly? How do you get your icing smooth? I am open to suggestions if anyone's got any! I am getting better at it with time, but I know there has got to be someone who has a little trick up their sleeve!!!
I've created this blog as a place to share what I love: baking, painting, drawing, photography, graphic design, cooking, entertaining (parties & such)... Ok, so just about anything that allows me to be creative is on the list! It's a little mix of what I do & also an inspirational notebook for some of the beautiful things I find along the way.
