Hello guys, how are you doing this evening?
That’s great. Ahem! I made a cake today! But… it was out of a box.
My first box cake, actually. Well, it wasn’t from scratch, but I wanted to make it quick so I could spend more time decorating it. 🙂 I found this really cool tutorial on how to decorate it easily HERE. I suggest you check it out! I used THIS photo to trace over. 🙂
Here it is! I edited it and added the eye. It appears that I forgot to take a picture AFTER I put on the eye… xD
The eye didn’t quite look like that. 😛
The bluebird is pretty simple. 🙂 Just four different colors: blue, red, yellow, and gray! I ended up using a black edible marker to outline the beak and a few other things, but of course that was after I had taken the pictures. Here are a few close-ups.
I’m afraid I hardly had enough of the back ground icing (a very light green) to cover the whole cake, so it looks a tiny bit like it just has the crumb coat and the edges don’t have much icing.
Well, I guess it’s okay for a beginner cake! 🙂 It was pretty fun.
Have you ever decorated cakes?
I have quite a few posts planned… there’s Clemmie’s diary entry and Inchy B’s next part and a clay tutorial and a few Farm Life things…. well! Better than having blogger block. 🙂 Right?
