My first REAL cake

So my friend has a birthday. That day is today. SOOOOOO, I decided to make her a cake. This is the first time that I have completed a whole cake and I think it turned out pretty well. The cake is chocolate with chocolate pudding in the middle. The frosting is cream cheese frosting from betty crocker : ) The roses are gum paste and the pink frosting is butter cream. Volia!

This is the cake at first.






These are the roses:



The mess I made:

And then I decided that I wasn't completely satisfied so I added some dots:




And it tasted pretty good too!

Now my problem is that Nathan's birthday is next week and I have NO idea what kind of cake to make him. Do you think he'll like roses too???

Oh my cow!! Did you make those roses all by yourself?!?! I think the dots are a VERY nice touch. And I'm coming out there in a couple weeks. You should make me a welcome to Utah cake. Just sayin' :)

I LOVE it. Probably wouldn't have worked for Trae's birthday, and I have a feeling Nathan might not like it either. Get cracking! (Oh and it was great seeing you guys again).

I am seriously impressed by your roses- are you sure you've never made a cake before?
