Cupcakes in class tonight.

Here's me if you were wondering who I am. (note the great hair!)
Here's what I amde in class tonight. I really like the drop swirl flower, HATE the rose, I have issues with pressure control. I love the clown too.
close up of clowns. I don't understand how that could be scarry, just look at them! These used cone striping, where you take a brush and put straight icing color in the bag, then fill it with white and it comes out in stripes. I love that look! I did a swir on some and it sort of lined up as I went around like magic! LOVE it. :) I need more heads on pics if anyone sees them let me know where. Wilton only makes clowns and stupid barbies. I want other cute things like witches, animals, Santas...
Here's the rose, see how the tips of the petals sort of broke? That's because I don't have enough strength in my hand to keep even pressure. It was sooooo painful to make this rose. Please admire it! hehe. This is my color matches for cool caribbean and gooovy guava by the way. :)
Bear. Brian loves bears. :)(note mixed up icing we had left by then)
And that's it for today, you can see a bit of "Shell border" on the bear pic, I like that border a lot, and was pretty good at it.

Next week is ALL stupid roses, we shall see...

Your clowns are very impressive! You did a good job and even if your rose was painfull to do, if you would not have tell about the broken border, we could not know it was not plan this way! This rose look great!

Hi Erin...don't worry, I think your rose looks great! I took the same class several years ago and never could get a rose to come out, at all. Hey...what about making your own "heads" using the stamps you have. I have seen your cards and you do such a great job. I think you could make the heads for your icing bodies and they would be beautiful. Just a thought. Love looking at your site.

Your roses do look great - as do all of the other techniques you've learned. Great job.

Wow...you're doing really well and moving much quicker than we did when I was in the class. Probably has something to do with the fact that you ARE the class! ;-)
