Cake Decorating Class - Week 3

Week 3 of cake decorating class was all about cupcakes. I was kind of ahead of the curve on this one. At least when it comes to frosting. I have that down!

But we also got out the practice boards and learned some borders, flowers and leaves.

Next week is my final cake decorating class. I have to bring a filled and iced 8 inch cake to class with me. Then we will learn how to make some ribbon roses and some other flowers before finally making a complete cake. We were asked to pick something out of the book to recreate. I am trying to decide between these two:


They are actually pretty similar. I guess it will just depend on how confident I feel about my decorating skills that day. But I do have a cool new caddy to carry all my tools.

I will be sure to post photos of my final project. And now that I am about to graduate, I am ready to register for another class or two. Wilton offers two more classes - Flowers & Design and Fondant & Gum Paste. I am thinking about taking both at the same time.
