I used to be a pretty good cake decorator.  I did it professionally and/or as a hobby for over 15 years and then gave it up.  I decided to make a birthday cake for a friend a couple weeks ago, my first one in about 9 years! 

I used this red velvet recipe and it was a pretty good recipe:

And this cream cheese icing recipe which was REALLY good.  Good enough to eat by the spponful  Grin

I kept it simple with flowers and added some meeple sprinkles.

Lovely job, especially on the blue roses and their leaves.  Nine years may have gone by, but you definitely still have the skills!  And you can never go wrong with red velvet.

Looks great and sounds delicious too!

Fancy cake making is very popular these days. So you were doing that on a hobby and professional level long before this hype. Cool! Even though you call this an easy cake, I can see you have great skills.

Very true!  I used to go to cake conventions and met a lot of people and I was getting out of the cake biz when cake shows started popping up on tv and I was like "Hey! I know these people!"

and thanks!
