After completing Wilton course 1, I realized I am slowly turning in to a cake decorating junky and signed up for course 2 at Micheals. In course 2, I will be learning about using royal icing and color flow, with the focus being flowers and borders. I don’t have to make a cake for every class, like in course 1, instead I will use the various flowers made during the class with royal icing for the basket weave cake at the end.
No pics from this class since we only played aroud with the practice board. We reviewed the basics from course 1 and then learned how to make rosettes, the reverse shell border, the rosebud and the chrysanthemum. We only used buttercream icing in this class, but will begin with the royal icing and colorflow next week. Again, I am the only one signed up, so I was only there about an hour this time.
Next class: I will be making the colorflow bird for the final cake, as well as learning how to make apple blossoms, violets and violet leaves.
Supplies needed: I ended up buying the course 2 kit, since it contained the oval pans needed for the final cake. I also need to get some parchment triangles, a corsage pin and a couple of featherweight bags for the royal icing.
