I had a special occasion for her to decorate a cake for. I loved how willing she was to decorate her first cake for an occasion she wouldn't even get to be at. Hopefully I can save her a piece of it!
Here she is putting on the crumb coat. This was tough as the cake was so moist that chunks of it were starting to come off!
And then the final coat.
Ta-Da! Pretty good for a first time cake by a 5th grader!
Her choice for an accent color was purple. Great choice!
This is the trick I taught her to put her icing bag in an empty glass to fill with frosting and avoid getting the frosting all over the upper inside of the bag. Helps keep things clean when decorating.
