Practice Cake

I'm taking a cake decorating class. The first one was last night. I didn't make anything in that one, just watched and learned what all we would be doing. It was very cool. I am the only student. That's mixed on the one hand I was looking forward to meeting other people, on the other I get all one on one private lessons. I'm going to take full advantage of that. The teacher Jodie is great! LOVE her.

This is a practice cake. I didn't want to wait until just before my class to find that I can't flat ice a cake or something. I do need more practice. I think this would be good enough for me to work on in class though. I also practiced the star thingie used for filling in shapes and all. I think I did ok on it. Some of mine are wonkie but again, practice.
Brian is loveing this cake business, practice cakes, lesson cakes, the whole thing is great to him. :)

I took Level 1 and 2 of the Wilton Courses with some girlfriends a few years ago. Unfortunately, I don't get to use my knowledge all that much, but the classes were a hoot!

The hardest part for me is actually ICING the cake!!! I have trouble mixing the icing without adding too much air to start with, and then getting it flat... fuhgetaboutit!

Have fun!!!

Are you taking this at Michael's? I've been wanting to take the class. I bought an Elmo cake pan that I want to use for Ander's birthday this year and need to learn to do those little stars!!

Looks great!
