Beautiful roses, I still can't do roses and I've been trying for years.

Welcome to DC! I hope you enjoy it!

I'm amazed how well I did, I watched this site on youtube and was able to make them (as per the photo) and I think over time and with patients I'll get better.

You cake looks great! Love this site! I found it last night, and couldn't wait to wake up this morning and get back on here and read/see more :)

Thanks for the link, but I've had hands on training and still can't get it. I'm much better at fixing up people and regular cooking. Desserts and Cakes baffle me.

Welcome to DC and congratulations, you have a nice cake there.

I have been making cakes for more years than I can count if you hadn't told me that was your first I would have thought you were a professional.
