In this month we only officialy did one cake, but I also did a Halloween cake. This month was all about royal icing and making flowers. I think I caught on quickly and had a lot of fun. I enjoyed the color flow, and used it in a later bridemaid cake. I can see alot of possibilities, but don't know how often I'll really use it. I do enjoy having left over royal icing flowers though. They come in handy when you decide at the last min to make a cake. And although I do'nt know if I'll ever use basket weave (it uses a TON of icing) I did enjoy doing it.
And this was the Halloween cake I did, to this day I'm still upset that I forgot to take a picture of a slice of the cake. The batter was also tri-colored, so in theory when you cut a slice it looks a piece of candy corn.
