Yay! I completed course 2! Originally I wasn’t sure if was going to take this class. I didn’t really see myself making a lot of cakes with flowers, and I am kind of anxious to start the fondant class. But in the end I decided to give it a try, and I am really glad I did! I feel like I learned a lot about working with royal icing, and I love how all of flowers came out! I also learned a couple of new borders and other decorating techniques.
Tonight’s class was all about the final cake. I started off by learning a rope border, then how to make a basket-weave design. Then I took all of the flowers I had made throughout the course and piled them on to the cake, along with the colorflow birds.
Next up is Wilton Course 3, fondant and tiered cakes! I am really looking forward to working with fondant and continuing to build on what I have already learned.
