I have thoroughly enjoyed taking these cake decorating classes. Tonight I finished the last class of the second course. In a couple of days I will sign up for the 3rd and final course. There is another class I would like to take in November but it is only two days.
In this course we worked mainly with royal icing. We learned a few flowers this course and then tonight we had to bring an already iced cake. We learned how to do the basket weave. It was a lot of fun. Went with a yellow cake, white butter cream almond flavored icing and brown icing for the basket weave. It was a lot of fun. I made a larger than normal cake because I have plans for this cake. As you can see from the pictures I wrote "Happy Birthday" on it. It is supposed to be for September and October birthday's but I decided not to put that on it.
The next course starts a week from today. It is a course where we work mainly with fondant and gum paste. It should be fun. We will learn how to work with it on a larger scale. The button flowers from this course were just to give us a taste for it.
Well I hope you all had a good day. Mine wasn't the most productive but it was a good day and I did get a lot done.
