I had an absolute blast in the second cake decorating class! I think that royal icing and I are going to be good friends. I really like the tedious work of making flowers, petal by petal. To me at least, this cake can't even begin to compare to any of the ones from course one.
So as I mentioned, we made all different kinds of flowers with royal icing this time. We made a bunch in class and then were encouraged to make more at home. We used a flower nail and cut out templates to help guide us in petal size and placement. We made each flower on a small square of wax paper and then dried them in flower formers to give them a curved look. They get really hard and are almost like a piece of candy to eat, but all very edible and tasty!
We did the rose again as well as different types of leaves ....
Pansies and daisies ....
Apple blossoms, violets, daffodils and primroses:
We also learned how to do a basket weave and rope border to finish the cake:
Voila!!! I had so much fun! I have a million little flowers made and am all ready to start making some cakes!!
What do you think about that??
Until the next time ...
