Ombre Birthday Cake for "moi" :)

Project Description

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!

What you will need
