Cake Decorating Career Ended

I took up cake decorating when I was 5 years old.  It was mid-October and my sister was having her 1st birthday.  It was already a pretty cake.  My Mom had just iced it.  My brother and I decided it would look so much better if there were indentations added to this cake.  That would make it look so special!  So, we used our index fingers to make little dents, trying to keep it symmetrical (I didn't not know that word at the time, but I was already weird that way - love symmetry).  In between making these absolutely lovely indentations, we licked the frosting off our fingers.  I remember - great frosting! Mom was so NOT pleased.  In fact, my brother and I made a run for it right out the window.  I don't know how it was resolved, but my sister did get a cake for her birthday with nice smooth frosting.  That was the end of my cake decorating career.  My artistic endeavors ruined.  I found other "artistic" endeavors later - all unappreciated, although not so much as that cake.
