I've been busy making cakes lately. I found this cute rosette cake tutorial and wanted to try it out. The pink rose cake I made for my 2 year old sons's b-day (yes, it's pink, and he's 2 and doesn't care what color it is:-- next year he'll get a boy cake).
The 2nd cake was one I made for our church's "Great to be 8" night, which was a special program for all the kids turning 8 and getting baptized this year. It uses up a bunch of frosting, but is super easy! It only requires a 1M tip (it's a very large star shape) and you make circles with it. You can find the cake tutorial and the crusting buttercream recipe here.
I made four 9" cakes and then carved a smaller circle out of 2 to make the top circle smaller (I realized later I should have just used my 6" pans for that, ah vell)
Now I have to make another birthday cake for my daughter who is turning 8 in less than 2 weeks... Not sure what we are doing for it yet, but it will be chocolate!
