Practice makes perfect

Contrary to what the title may imply, this is not the perfect result from practice. Rather, this is the first practice of what will eventually be perfect...hopefully.
I took a cake decorating class a few weeks ago, so I do have some training.....I am making a wedding cake for a friend in May, so until then I will be making all kinds of cakes for every event imaginable. I made this cake on Saturday (it helps keep the general conference sleepies away) for an Easter/conference family dinner on Sunday. I called it a pre-wedding wedding cake because at that dinner we got to meet two soon to be in-laws! My cousin Grant is getting married to Jenny on June 19th and my other cousin Ashley is getting married to Jason on June 5th. Love is in the air.
Anyway, so here's my first go at cake decorating and it's a total BLAST, I love it. So, if you need any fun or fancy cakes just let me know! I'd be happy to whip something up! If you have anything against the taste of fondant you've had, come and taste my home-made fondant, it's DELISH, not joking. It will change your mind right around.
Keep in mind that this is not fondant, it's butter cream, which amazingly makes it look better. I do realize that these flowers are much too big for this cake, but on Sunday morning, it's a bit too late to do anything about it.

That's a GORGEOUS cake. And you've piqued my curiosity on this "good tasting" fondant (but not really fondant) you speak of. I wouldn't know what to think!
