Cake Decorating

My parents own their own cake shop and when I have the time I'll go and help out. A few weeks back I decided to have a go at decorating a cake of my own, I found a design I liked and went from there. I also practiced some of my cupcake piping, so let me know what you guys think!

I saw a vintage Barbie cake online and loved the colours and the vintage silhouette so I decided to make one of my own. The silhouette I hand painted on with black food colouring from a photo I found online. I didn't have a round cake board to use at the time so just used a square one and iced that with the cake. I love pink and black and think the colours go so well together, I finally added some pink bows to the hair and board. I'm still practicing my fondant bows and trying to make tiny ones is really fiddly.

I also practiced my piped flowers, I tried two different designs, one of them was the rose design. I definitely think I'm improving and I'm happy with how they came out. 

What do you guys think?
