Final Cake!!

Wednesday, March 23, 2011

Well, I did it! I finished Level One of the Wilton Method of Cake Decorating: "Decorating Basics." Only my certificate says Nanal. Apparently, the instructor's husband couldn't read my writing. That's a first!

So.... here's my much-stressed-over FINAL CAKE!! It's not quite done yet... I just have to do the trim on the bottom. I can see a couple of flaws, but overall, I'm very pleased (tickled!) with how it turned out.

I'm very happy w/ the roses. Who knew I could do that?? The instructor did a couple on my cake, but here's one of mine:

I don't think I'm gonna take any of the "higher" level of cake classes. I just wanted the basics so I could make non-embarrassing cakes for the grandkids. I think I can do that now.

Gee... now what am I gonna talk about???

    I just love the classes! I am overloading my family on cake though! My daughter in law finally told me not to drop off so much as she says "it calls to her and she has to eat them!" She has three boys, I am surpized she gets a chance! Now I need to find someone else to feed!

I have taken the beginner and the cupcake class. I want to take an advanced class now!

Great rose!
