Do you sell this cake? No, just for fun

Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this cake: I made this cake for my own birthday cake. If you have a cake addiction - you will understand. Haha! I have tried Jessica's wax paper method before but it didn't come out perfect like hers, imagine that. I wanted to give it another go with her new ombre "mixing" technique in this class. The stripes are not as straight as I wanted, the cut out on top of the ombre didn't work out so well either but I patched things up the best I could and I think it turned out okay - by no means perfection like she does, but good for me :) She has amazing talent!

I know this doesn't resemble the cakes in this class at all but.I took this class to learn more of Jessica's techniques. I just love her! This is a 6" round double barrel. It is sitting in the snow. The all butter buttercream looks more yellow against the snow background! I should have dusted it will luster.

It looks awesome dear. You honestly did great. Jessica sure has amazing God given talent. I absolutely love her. I guess with constant practice we will get better. I know things do get better with practice and time. Cheers

Just saw this now. Gorgeous design. Quite honestly I didn't notice the "imperfections" until I read what you wrote. Great job.
