Cake Decorating Fail

I am attending a baby shower and I volunteered to bring the cake. I really need the practice and my family is tired of eating cake, I practice a lot. Well for some reason I had a mental block when it came to deciding on a design. The next thing I knew it was the day before the event and I hadn't even started. I made a simple yellow cake with chocolate filling and I decided on a whipped cream frosting. I never have decorated with whipped cream and now I know why. 

The frosting is much to soft to do anything with, as you can see in the picture above. The border came out horrible, different sizes, and I ran out of frosting so I had to improvise. I made the bootie out of fondant but the top of it came out horrible since the frosting was so soft. I think it would have looked really cute had I used buttercream. I learned my lesson and from now on will only use buttercream or fondant to decorate a cake.  I know the cake tastes good so I hope the attendees will enjoy eating the cake.
