Number 12 on my “26 Before 27″ list is to decorate a mini cake each month. And since Monday was my birthday, I decided this month to make myself a tiny birthday cake. It came out terrible.. I almost don’t want to post pictures of it!! The icing I used was WAY too thin. I’ve never really used icing tips before either, and I’ve learned that I don’t have a very steady hand.
Just so I don’t feel like a complete fail, here are some of the cakes I’ve made in the past. See, I’m not really that bad of a decorator!!
And of course it wouldn’t be a cake decorating night without my traditional leftovers cupcakes! Since the cake is so tiny, I use the leftover cake batter to make a small batch of cupcakes and use them to squirt all of the leftover icing from my piping bag. (I hate to waste something so yummy!) Is it sad that I almost like these more than the cake itself?
