Cake Decoration

Birthday Cake

I did this yesterday and I think it's the nicest cake I've done yet.

The cake is the chocolate cake recipe I posted a month or so ago. The icing is just a simple buttercream. I piped the writing with a #4 plain tip and the scalloped border was done with a small star tip. For the flowers, I used a petal tip that came with the set I bought back in July. I need more practice with that, but I think this is pretty good. Way better than anything from the local supermarket, that's for sure!

For this cake, I'd charge $15-18. What do you think?

Nice job!
How big is it? If it's a half sheet you'd get $30 for it around here.

This is a 9x13", or 1/4 slab.

Then you've got it priced right. My motto is gouge 'em for whatever they're willing to pay. ;)
