Cake decorating

I’ve been having fun making and decorating cakes lately. I’m going to put some pictures up in chronologic order (starting at the most recent), because I’ve been improving lot!

Update May 24, 2019: so I’ve made some more progress and added some new pics below.

Strawberry lemonade cake – lemon cake with alternating fillings of lemon Swiss Buttercream and strawberry curd. Frosted with vanilla Swiss Buttercream and garnished with strawberry curd, Buttercream flowers, and sugar glass.

Most recent cake that I’m super proud of! I did a two toned effect for the frosting and got the frosting super even. My corners looked really good this time, but you can’t see that :(. My first time doing a ganache drip went really well, and I had a lot of fun with flowers. Oh, and this one’s a chocolate cake with vanilla Swiss Buttercream.
Second ombre cake. First cake I’ve ever sold!! Corners and sides turned out much crisper and I like the color. I don’t know how it looked inside or anything, though, so that’s a little sad 😦 The frosting IS white, the picture was last minute and it’s in a box…
Inside of purple ombre cake Notice: uneven layers from bad leveling. Also, uneven amounts of frosting in between layers. But the outside frosting looks really even!
Second cake: 4 layer white cake with ombre frosting effect. Notice: got the frosting thickness better this time, but the corners are ALL screwed up. And my sides aren’t smooth, but I think that the height was pretty good.
4 layer carrot cake – notice: way too thin on the frosting, rounded corners, and the fact that it’s really short!
