I like to look back at my earlier cakes to see how I’ve improved. I still think this cake is pretty neat aside from the roughness about it.
I remember the part that took the longest was the little apple icon at the bottom. I had to mix each color separately and pipe it on just right. Trying to get all the icons and wording to fit took some patience too!
I made this cake for my then boyfriend, now fiance, Aaron. He is a Mac fan, as am I. He was into collecting Apple Newton and MessagePads at the time.
*What I Learned: It’s a good idea to draw out your design before you start decorating, it allows you to get a feel for how you need to arrange elements of the cake.
*Sweet Advice: Be patient! It’s best to take things slow and think them out as you do them. Remember that old rule from grade school? “Measure twice, cut once!”
