My name is Rebecca, and here is my entry for "JJ's Amateur All Occasion Cake Contest!"  

The cake is lemon filled with lemon curd and vanilla buttercream, and iced with vanilla American style buttercream.  All decorations are buttercream.  Used Wilton's spray airbrush for the faded orange effect.  Thank you for considering my cake!

jj, does this include self taught decorators? Never had any lessons my whole life except for what I have read, saw on videos, watched on TV.  I will upload my picture and hopefully, it will pass. If this is not acceptable, I will just have to make a cake! (I'm hungry for cake anyway!)
