It seems like I've been decorating a lot of cakes recently, so I decided to post a compilation of some that I've done over the past few years. The bottom two rows in the picture above were all done in the latter part of this year. I've never taken a class or anything--just a lot of playing around. I generally like good ol' frosting; I'm not really a fan of fondant, though maybe that's something I'll eventually try out. I like to find different sprinkles, candies, and frostings to decorate with. Usually I try to match birthday candles with the decor of the cake. Sometimes I even try to coordinate the color of the cake, like I did with the pink strawberry cake shown in the two photos in the bottom right corner. Click on the photo for a larger view.
