This was the first cake I've done for someone that I've never met. A friend-of-a-friend was throwing her husband a surprise 50th birthday party tonight, so she called me a few weeks ago, at our mutual friend's recommendation. (I must admit I was a little nervous. I guess when I make a cake for a friend, I feel like I know what they would like. And even though I've talked to this lady on the phone, in the end I didn't feel like I knew exactly what she was expecting.) She ended up sending me one of the party decorations so I could make the cake coordinate with the theme and colors.

This was a challenging cake to make because it was very large and covered in fondant. I had to do it three times before I got it the right size and shape. But I think overall it turned out pretty good. (I just hope the starbursts don't look too flower-like.) Hope they enjoyed it!

I think it looks awesome! I don't think it looks like flowers at all. Great job!!

Wow, all your cakes look amazing!!! If I was to get a cake like that, I wouldn't even want to cut it. =)

So, will you give me icing advice? I just used store bought stuff that is in the cake mix aisle. I didn't like how it looked...what should I do differently next time?
