Wilton Course 2, Class 1

by Melissa on April 9, 2008

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.

Sounds like so much fun! I am loving my class (halfway through Course I now!) and can’t wait to move on.

I know you posted this a long time ago but I’m about to take the Wilton II class next week. I was reading through the book and it doesn’t really say what’s required on the first day of class other than the kit and booklet. Just wondering if you remembered, email me if you do, thanks and the blog is great!

The roses are SO hard to get the hang of! Check youtube.com for video demonstrations and good luck!
