4-H Cake Decorating Project

Would you like to learn how to create a cake in the shape of a baseball diamond with “bases” and “baseball players” in honor of your Dad’s birthday with his favorite team marked in the colored icing? Or would you prefer to learn to jazz up a chocolate cake with beautiful red roses and a green border? You can make any of these cakes. It starts with knowing the basics like simple borders, decorations and cake molds. Then it advances to lace/lattice work, tiered cakes, special icing and finally advanced flowers. Creativity ---it’s just a piece of cake!
