Cakes, Cakes, and more Cakes......

I started a cake decorating class at the beginning of April. I finished the first 4 week course and will start up again in June. It's fantastic~ It's something creative I can do that includes decorating, and using my handwriting, which I am actually fond of, not to toot my own horn (o:
I hope to be talented enough to make wedding cakes someday.
Only problem, I can't have my cake and eat it too.... (or make my cake and eat it too)
In our class we make buttercream frosting, and you do know what the two main ingredients of that is, right? SHORTENING AND SUGAR! ughhh....I HAVE to find a way to make healthier cakes with frosting that is actually healthy and the right consistency to be able to decorate. That would be so cool, I'm sure it must be possible??????
So, here's some fun pictures of my first few cakes (and some cupcakes, clowns especially for you Mary~I'll make them for your homecoming party. heeheeheeheehee in my most devious laugh......

My baby boy turned one! And~he's not too fond of cake

these were cute and seriously so easy to make. See, they're not scary clowns, right Mary? I still can't figure out how to make my pictures not sideways!! sorry guys
My sister in law's birthday cake, see it's a good thing I'm taking this class because the birthday season in our family is now upon us! Learning how to make the roses was way cool~
And, while everyone ate cake this is what I ate! But, I'm quite sure mine was better (o: This is my version of the raw spaghetti I ate over at the most fantastic restaurant in Portland Oregon. If you're ever this way, you've got to check it out~ The Blooming Lotus.
My next kitchen tool purchase is going to be the saladacco. It's this cool gadget that turns your zuchinni into little angel hair pasta! yyyyyuuuummmmmmmm
