First Blood, er, First Blog

My name is Leslie and I'm starting this blog to chat and vent about baking and decorating and to use it as a place to stash and--okay--showoff, my baking photos. I'll also be adding links to other baking blogs and websites where you can buy cool baking accessories.

The cake pictured above is a white cake with buttercream icing. The cake board is covered with fondant that has been impressed with swirls, the cake is covered with fondant, the seam is trimmed with hand-rolled balls and the entire presentation is covered with two sizes of leaves and three sizes of fondant flowers. Daisey cookie cutters were used to make the flowers. Pearl dust was brushed on the flowers.

For those of you anal-retentive, detail obsessed, scientifically accurate critics that are unfamiliar with the rare flowers displayed on this cake, they are from the species: fondant, genius: daisey, color: white. . . as they say in the botanical bizness.

Got milk?
