Hi, guys! My name is Jess from Chicago. I am new to this forum. I am a baking and pastry student in the evening and a full time IT Project Manager during the day.
I just want to share my first Cake Bible creation. I made a strawberry version of the Star Spangled Rhapsody from the book. The cake turned out really well and everyone loved it. The buttercream also held up in the low 80s temperature last Sunday (unusually warm here in Chicago right now for spring). I’m attaching the picture below. Sorry if the piping doesn’t look all that great. I just started my cake decorating class a few weeks ago and I’m still learning a lot. I need a lot of practice.
I also made a mocha chiffon cake with the classic buttercream. People raved about the icing. It was very smooth and silky. Just amazing.
Hope to share some more cakes soon.
