I made this cake!!!

Well my friends.....I didn't think I really had enough to do in my life... so I decided to take some cake decorating classes!!! How fun!!! I made this cake in last nights class...it was the last class for a while. I think it turned out so pretty!!! AND it even tastes as good as it looks. The inside is dark chocolate with a pink peppermint filling...yummy!!
The total outside of the cake is made of fondant. even the flowers...we learned to make those a couple weeks ago.
I just had to post it!!! now it is back to making invites for my parents 50 wed Aviv. party...I will post those in a day or 2.
I don't know how many of you have ever mass produced cards/invites but OH my Heck!! & Uff Da!! it is tons of work!!! Better get back to it!!!
Happy middle of the week!!!

OMH -- that cake is totally AWESOME; you might say you can't cook, but don't ever say you can't create; that's simply a masterpiece, Gwen!!! I'm soooooo impressed!!! Wish I could have a piece right now, though it's ALMOST too pretty to eat! ;-)

What a beautiful cake - doesn't even look real. The combo sounds yummy though - chocolate & peppermint - mmmmm good! Absolutely gorgeous.

Gwen, this cake is fabulous! Almost too pretty to eat but it sounds delicious as well.

Fantastic it looks so yummy. If I made anything that pretty I don't think I would be able to eat it looks more like it should be preserved and framed!

Absolutely beautiful, Gwen! If I made a cake like this, I would want to just look at it for a long, long time before cutting it! I am so proud of you! You did wonderfully!

LOVE the cake! It's amazing. :)

By the way, I totally understand the whole craziness of mass producing invitations. I made our wedding invites, and while it started out fun, it was a chore by the end. Hang in there - I'm sure they're beautiful.
