Breast Cancer Awareness ~ A Pink Cake


Hello Everyone,
I'm joining Beverly for Pink Saturday.

My cake decorating class was finished on Thursday evening.
For the final exam we had to make flowers and write on our cake.

I decided to make Pink Roses. And I printed Blog on the top of my cake because I love to blog.
Also it's October and Breast Cancer Awareness month. This post is a tribute to the research and development of a cure for the most deadly disease....CANCER OF ANY KIND.


I had a great time learning the techniques of cake decorating.  Making several different shades of pink was fun.  Of course my kitchen looked like a bomb went off with all the powdered sugar flying out of the Kitchen Aid mixer while it's going full speed ahead. LOL.






I know the printing is not perfect. But I enjoyed myself and now when I make cupcakes I can add a little more interest to them. 


I used a #12 tip and a #104 filled with stiff consistency buttercream icing. This rose looks very different in the instruction book.  (Ribbon Rose)
I like my ruffly rose just fine....  


The garden has a few interesting pink flowers still blooming.  The Pink Simplicity Rose and Dark Pink Zinnias made a lovely bouquet to accompany my decorated cake display.


Different shades of Pink decorate the side of cake.  Tip #12 and #10 round.


I have been photographing my flowers and using the images as greeting cards this past year.  I think this photo is going to be sent to my sweet mother who has loved roses all of her 90 years. 


Cake decorating takes practice to look professional.  I think I will stay with my amateur status. 


The little green leaves are fun to make.  Tip #352 with thin consistency frosting made the pastel green leaves.








Thank you  so much for indulging me with my learning experience of Cake Decorating.
There are so many wonderful things to experience. 
Thanks for visiting My Cozy Corner
and
Please come back soon.
