Yey! my little nice has arrived :) so i made a cake.... Please forgive the roughness and not so good quality of the cake, it's my first butter cream. I started after tea (with much enthusiasm) and by the time ten o'clock came around I had almost lost interest. I tried my first roses and they failed but i was not expecting them to work so I'm not worried :) it's all about learning But here it is...
The strange pattern is an result of my attempt at an smoothing technique, it did work to a degree. But as you see the paper towel i was using held a pattern that embossed the cake . Oh well
The swirls were too thick and the only round tip i had was far to big.
ohh look at my Christmas cake plate :)
