So here's the background info; I LOVE to bake, and I seriously want to learn to decorate cakes... the only thing is, I don't necessarily want to eat
baked goods as often as I want to bake them! lol
I've been contemplating this dilemma for a while, and finally decided that I'm going to start baking cakes to practice my decorating on... and then I can give the cakes away
I will admit, I'm using cake mixes, since the cakes are just to practice on... but I'm also using recipes from the Cake Mix Doctor, 'cause plain old box cakes are pretty boring. Today's experiment was with the recipe for Snickerdoodle cake... and let me tell you, it smelled absolutely AMAZING baking in the oven.
Of course, I can't give away a cake without knowing whether or not it's yummy, so I made a "tasting cake". Just a little bit of batter baked up in a small mason jar, so cute and tiny I could squeal
The carnation is for size reference
The big cake will be decorated tomorrow... photos will be posted when it's all put together!
