Today is my birthday! I celebrated with friends last week and ate a delicious homemade cake. But today is my birthday….. and that cake is long gone….. so I had no other choice than to bake me a cake.
Cake decorating was one of last year’s obsessions. The community college was offering a course that was taught by a local baker, and I couldn’t resist the urge to learn how to pipe roses. I took the $130 course, bought the Wilton master 56-piece tip set, and watched how easy it was on YouTube. So why, then, do my roses look more like wild carnations and less like American Beauties? I have tried many frosting recipes and have gotten the best reviews for this one: Buttercream Icing. Kudos if you can make roses like those on this website.
