Cake and Roses

This is a cake I recently made for my friend, Meagan, who is having a baby.  Another friend, Amy, showed me how to make roses and since then I've liked to add them to most cakes I make. As I've found, roses cover a host of mistakes in the frosting.

I saw the idea to do a half moon shape on the top with roses on some website after doing a "google" search for ideas on cake decorating.

This cake is by no means perfect, but it's come a long way since I started six and a half years ago with my son's birthday cake. It was supposed to be a rocket, but at least one person asked if it was a fish.

On an unrelated note, I can see that I need to get a little bit better with my photography. The lighting and backgrounds definitely could use some improvement!
