Welcoming Spring with a Cake

Last night I finished the first Wilton Cake Decorating course. Overall I was pretty disappointed in the class. Most of what I learned was from the other students or from looking at the book, the teacher was pretty useless. Thankfully there is another teacher available at the store! This is my "graduation" cake:

Unfortunately I had some baking issues and wasn't able to get a secondary layer for my cake. I still went ahead and decorated it in order to get the practice. As much as I didn't like the class, I really appreciated the time away doing something that I enjoyed.

And best of all, the cake was delicious!

Here's hoping Course 2 goes better!

Edited to add: Cute Easter cupcakes I made, unfortunately I only have pictures from "during" the decorating:

I think that cake is beautiful even without the second layer. I would love to take a course like that some day. Your cupcakes are very pretty too. I love your blog background and design. Thanks for the inspiration :)

Okay, you are seriously talented. I have to say decorating cakes is definitely not my forte. So fun and springy!!!
