What are you most proud of? I love cooking but I really don't like baking. I think I have baked only a few times in my whole life. However I wanted to learn how to make realistic cakes and learn how to cover with fondant. This is my very first cake and I really tried to make it as realistic as possible. I am so so proud of making this, baking it and all.
