Almond Cream Cheese Frosted Rosette Cake

A could weeks ago, I was asked by a dear friend at my church if I could team-teach a cake & cupcake activity night. I happily agreed, but when I hung up the phone afterwards, my stomach immediately started practicing its sailor knots.
But then I thought it'd be a fun opportunity to share what little I know (I'm serious! I'm still learning so much!) about cake decorating. Plus, it gave me a fun excuse to teach myself the "rosette" cake decorating technique I've seen all over Pinterest. I ended up adding a few little yellow pears to dress it up a bit - I think it turned out lovely!
 If you're looking for my Almond-Infused Cream Cheese Recipe, aka my favorite recipe on the entire planet, it's here. 
I ended up making this almond cream cheese frosted carrot cake, a 4 layer-pink ombre cake frosted with white chocolate raspberry frosting (to come, my darlings), a red velvet cake frosted with almond cream cheese frosting, and a zebra-striped cake (inside striped with fudge and white chocolate cake) frosted with cocoa butter cream and coated with chocolate sprinkles.

Everyone was so nice, and I loved having a reason to make a few lovely cakes.
