Mostly due to my cake decorating class, I have decided to volunteer making desserts for everything that I can. Our ward had a Patriotic Party last week and since I will be out of town for July 4th, I thought it would be super fun to actually make something patriotic. So, I did cupcakes and a cake.
I kind of went crazy and did any patterns I could thing of with the frosting I had left-over from my class and other practice sessions (thus the strange blues I used). My very favorite ones are the red stripes and the dots. If I had two 12’s I might have done just dots and stripes in both colors rather than doing everything that entered my mind :).
I also decorated a cake so that I could practice getting the frosting on smoothly…I think I’m getting better though the uniformity of the dots on the border could use a little more practice.
Here’s my little boy doing the “hover” around the treats once he woke up from this nap.
