Cake Decorating Class - Week 4

20II (or the year of me) has been filled with some great accomplishments. The marathon, the Michelob Ultra Challenge and now I can add cake decorating class to the list. This week, I completed my four-week Wilton Cake Decorating Basics course.

We started the last class by practicing our writing skills. It was great to learn some of the tricks of the trade. I know feel much more comfortable writing with frosting. Next, we learned to make roses. This is why I took the class in the first place. Check out my first attempt:

After we made a few roses, it was time to create a cake. We each had to bring in a plain frosted cake that we would decoration at the end of class. We could use any of the techniques we had learned during the month. Here is my finished product:

 I am so happy I took the class. Not only did it get me out of the house once a week, it also taught me to use all the great cake decorating tools I have had for years. I was even inspired to sign up for the next two courses: Flowers & Cake Design and Fondant & Gum Paste. Classes start next week. I can't wait to share all the cool things I will learn. :)
