Practice Cake #2

My husband decided that the cake would look better if I piped the sides instead of smoothing them on. So here is attempt #2 with piping. I also got black food coloring this time. I like the color very much. :)

The first pic is just straight line piping. The next two pics I added a few vertical lines on the sides to try to give it the look of stone blocks. I'm not sure if I like it or not. I wanted to compare them. The icing looks "runny" because I didn't refrigerate it while I was working on it. I used it right out of the bowl after mixing and I took a while working on it. I think I may have over mixed it too. I also forgot to do white icing on top of the cake for the inside of the portal. Oops. :)
