Cake Decorating Course 1 ... Flowers!

First things first ... yep ... changed my blog background yet again. There was just something I wasn't quite happy with on the last one, so I thought I'd try this new one out for size.

Now ... on to the main topic - Cake Decorating!

I fear I am horrible at keeping up with things, but I've been taking some Wilton cake decorating classes at my local Michael's Craft Store. It's been quite a bit of work, but a ton of fun! For the first course, you have to come to class every week with not only frosting in thin, medium and thick consistencies all colored and ready to go, but also a fresh cake to decorate.

We spend part of each class watching demonstrations on a technique and then we get to practice it on our practice boards. Then the second half of class we use those techniques to decorate our cake! The first day of class we just learned about how to make frosting and the things we would be learning. The second class is where the action started!

This class we learned a few different techniques. We learned how to do the star and how to pipe, which included outlining shapes and writing. We also started practicing the famous Wilton rose - which I was horrible at!

In the end I took a flower cookie cutter as my outlined shape, filled it in with stars, added some stems and made an attempt at a shell boarder. And yes, I ran out of time to make my stems green, so yellow it is - have a little imagination :)

Finished product!!
Until the next class ...

Well I think it turned out lovely...and since I don't know what the "famous" wilton rose is...I would have never guessed that your design wasn't planned! And to have something yummy to eat after practicing!

What fun! I've tried to get my daughter to take that class with me, but she is resisting...
Maybe I can convince her if she knows she gets to bake a cake every week :)
