    Hi Citymama-
    You can do it! I replied to your post with regard to the supplies I purchased. Otherwise, here is what I used:

    To place the cake, foil covered cardboard (I did not have a display plate large enough), several smaller mixing bowls for tinting the frosting,a couple spatulas.

    The Wilton Student kit came with a practice board, so I practiced each tip a few times before going to work on the cake. I made the cake, assembled it with 1st recipe of butter creamfilling and crumb coat frosting the first day.

    The second day I made the decorating frosting (a different recipe rated to hold together better for decorations, while my first recipe was rated highest for taste), and then tinted and decorated.

    I did the cake all freehand though I did mark out the happy birthday part to make sure it was even and proportional.

    Good luck and I hope to see your results!
