Last night I took an amazing Basic Cake Decorating Class at Cincinnati Cake and Candy Supply. My hubby got this for me for Mother's Day and I signed up for their September class. It’s a 4 week class that covers how to properly ice and border a cake, how to torte a cake with fruit fillings, basic flowers including a rose and rosebud, chocolate molding, writing, basketweave, simple figure piping including a clown, lacework and use of colors. How exciting!!
Although this is not on my 30 before 30 I am adding it to the list because, wel,l it's something I've always wanted to do and I am accomplishing it!!
Below are some quick snaps from class last night. We learned about baking at various temps, the proper way to ice a cake, filling a cake with fruit, and making a buttercream icing.
My fun apron I brought to class! Just in time for Fall.
My goodie box of supplies: tips, couplers, spatula, reusable bags, flower stand...fun!
Practicing my technique using the different tips.
My final product: I practiced transferring an image using piping gel, I outlined and practiced my stars to fill in this cute little piggy!
Stay tuned for pictures of next week's class.
