The cake turned out great and tasted good too. I wanted to do a caramel mud cake but the shop didn't have any so it ended up being white chocolate mud cake. I used 2 cake mixes. For the tin I used I think next time I'd use three. One packet of icing was just enough to do that cake and no more so for my 2 tiered cake I'll need 2 packets.
My cake looked almost as good as the $240 cake I copied it from, I was so proud of it. Yet another cake that I didn't want to cut. I also learned that that size cake was just enough for the amount of people we had over so if we ever have more over then the cake will need to be larger.
Now that Rose's birthday is over and done with I'm back to working on my cake. I will be making my first ever two tiered cake and I've been making lots of white sugar flowers. I haven't decided what colour to make the icing as I haven't any money left to go and buy more special food colouring. I have red and baby pink proper food colouring. I know I don't want a real red cake but I don't think I want a baby pink cake, like Rose had. I might use the ordinary food colourings I have to make purple or yellow, we'll see. My sugar flowers are getting better. I bought myself a cake decorating book from Big W so I have something there right in front of me to copy from, not just my memory from my web browsing.
