Cake decorating

My mum and I just finished the Wilton Cake basics Course.

Here is out final attempt to decorate a cake.

The first cake is my decorating. It is a chocolate coffee cake with coffee cream filling.

I was really trying to avoid the "bought at the grocery store look" so I free handed some paisley designs instead of loading it with buttercream.

This second cake my mum actually decorated. But I'm posting it because I baked the actual cake, and made the icing.

The cake is classic chocolate chocolate.

When were designing the second cake, we kept attempting to make roses hoping some would turn out nice enough to put on the top. However being unsuccessful at piping roses, we settles for our strengths and did the drop flowers instead.
