I used to decorate cakes and had quite a bit experience. I ďretiredĒ from cake decorating about 12 years ago and this is the 2nd or 3rd decorates cake Iíve made since then. It was for a friendís 30th bday. The top tier was lemon (donít really have a recipe - I cobbler together several). The bottom tier I used my favorite chocolate cake recipe. Itís not the best for cake decorating as itís super moist and sticky but itís pretty yummy.

I iced it with basic buttercream and the decorations are made of fondant. (The balloons are plastic).

Wow, that's one bold, colorful cake--I'm sure that your friend must have loved it!  Beautiful job; why'd you give cake decorating up?

I did it at a grocery store full time for 5 years and then as a side hobby/job for another 10 years.  The last year I tried to go solo as a full-time job and I hated it.  Mostly because of wedding cakes and my ex at the time who tried to get too involved and it made us fight a lot.
One day I just decided nope, not going to do it any more and I gave 15 years worth of collected tools and gadgets to my cousin.
