a cake!

i just took this cake decorating class and it was awesome! the class was given at Creations Gourmandes in St-Catherine, Qc. The teachers were awesome! i skipped level 1 and went straight to level 2 'cause i think that i've had enough experience on my own to manage. thank goodness i was fine! the class was basically to learn how to properly ice a cake smooth, make roses and borders. My next class is fondant; i cannot wait to do this one!!! Here are some pictures of the cake we made. oh yeah; it was very yummy too! next cake coming up is Brady's 5th birthday cake in a week and a half! this one will be covered with fondant so i have my great friend Amelie coming over to give me a hand in case i screw up!

for the fun of it, today i took the left over icing bag they sent us home with and the tip to make the roses and had fun making a few. i'm happy to say that i'm getting the hang of it. of course they are not professional looking since they've made thousands to get where they are at but i'm pretty proud of myself!

here are the roses close up

the side of the cake with the ribbon garland
the swirl-reverse swirl border (i love this one)
and the other side of the cake with the basket weave (i love the look of this) and a wave border

i'll be back later with the latest mixer and a card or two.

thanks for stopping by!

That's really beautiful! I love making cakes, but none of mine ever look like that. How long does that take?

Fondant, yes, I can't wait to hear how that goes.
