In my defense, it has been well over a year...closer to two, actually, since I worked on a cake. The last cake Mom and I made (we usually work together) was a wedding cake for a couple in our church, who got married January 1st, 2010.
In 2005, Mom and I signed up for Wilton cake decorating classes at Michael's. She and I took all three courses, and had a blast! I can't for the life of me find the pictures of all the cakes we've made, but maybe I will some day. I think my favorite one was one I made for my fiddle teacher, at the time. It was oval, with chocolate mocha icing (I'm a little obsessed with chocolate mocha, I guess!) and I put basketweave on the sides. I traced a fiddle on top, and iced every little detail. My buttercream fiddle had fine tuners and strings. :)
I never really mastered roses, though. You know, they're supposed to be "Wilton roses" but my evil brother calls mine "Wilting roses." He's bad.
Then there was the 2nd Amendment cake I made my grandpa for his birthday...btw, my freehand icing isn't the greatest, but I guess you can see that!
Someday when I find the pictures of our cakes, I will scan them in (pre-digital days) and post some of them. Not the first one, but maybe the last couple. :D
