With another birthday in the family, I had the oppurtunity to make another cake. It was fun, with some stressful moments. (Making over 200 drop flowers the day before, for instance, without really knowing how to make them.) I made the "Wilton Garden Party" cake in the Wilton Course 1 book. The cake recieved many "ooohs" and "ahhs" and it tasted good too. :) I used this yellow cake recipe, doubled, to make two 8-inch layers. I used a simple butter frosting for the ivory frosting and green leaves, and the same frosting (with a bit of organic shortening added) for the flowers.
