Wilton Cake Decorating Course Update II: Cake

This week’s course focused heavily on prepping and decorating a cake, and was much more demanding in terms of bringing items from home. I needed the cake itself, and my own buttercream in two consistencies (thin for spreading on the cake, and medium for decorating the cake), a serrated knife, and piping gel…all this in addition to last week’s supplies. 527 more words

My 1st cake decorating class

The cupcakes in my previous post looks so professional(umm, because they weren’t mine?)!  The picture here is my 1st try at decorating today.  I had one with a rose on it, but it fell over in my carrier on the way home :( 155 more words

Wilton Cake Decorating Course Update I: Cupcakes

A few weeks ago, I mentioned via Twitter and Instagram that I’d signed up for Wilton’s Building Buttercream Basics cake decorating course.

I signed up through Michael’s and, because of promotions and good timing, I paid $45 for my tuition and supplies. 349 more words


Some "me" time :)

Okay, don’t get too excited.  I didn’t decorate these cupcakes.  Tomorrow I’m going to a cake decorating class.  Right now the extent of my cake decorating abilities is I can go buy a can of frosting, open it up, and 95% of the time I don’t end up blending cake into the frosting.  75 more words
