I took cake decorating classes during summer school when I was 12 or 13 years old and I decorated a couple of cakes back then. However, a number of years passed by that I didn't decorate a single cake before my interest was renewed. I decided to pull out my old cake decorating supplies and make my sister a birthday cake. When I look at it now I laugh a little bit, but I was really proud of it when I made it a couple of years ago. This cake was the jumping off point for my love of cake decorating now.
