Cake Decorating Course 1 ... Scary Clowns!

So my mom reminded me today that she still has hardly seen any of my cake decorating class pictures yet. I tried to remind her that I've had a million bud vase orders this month and we're selling the house and there's that bar exam looming over next week so I was a bit busy. She feigned agony over the fact that of course my own mother got pushed aside when I am busy, because all she really wants is to see pictures from class. So Mom ... this one is for you :) (I LOVE YOU!)

The third class in Course 1 was all about building things. We started off learning how to build faces and characters. Adding on eyes, a nose, hair, etc. I can't say that I really enjoyed this at all. I tend to get bored when I have to make frosting in 10 different colors in little bags just to make a little boy or girl on my cake. Way too much work for me.

We also practiced the roses again! I pretty much sucked the first week, but I think it was because my frosting was too thin. That's probably the biggest lesson I've learned in class, that consistency matters ... a lot ... and it's very hard to get it right, but if it isn't .... big problems.

We also had to buy these really scary clown heads for class, because we were going to decorate cupcakes with big clowns made of icing. We learned how to use two colors to get a striped look and how to build up the body, legs and arms. We also practiced the drop flower, which I think you can see in the back of the first picture.

Fun class? I guess. Clowns scare me and I hope I never have to make them again. Fun to learn new things though!

More to come soon to keep Mom happy :)

Until the next time ...

Watched Killer Clowns two or three nights ago. Scary clowns. Your clowns are cute and edible. That makes them less dangerous!
