Special Note: I just found out that my little blog reached 100+ followers today. I had a giveaway planned but didn't realize it would happen so soon. I hope to be able to post about it in a few days. Please stay tuned and thanks for following... you are making this journey a blast!
This was my final cake for the second course of the Wilton cake decorating class. We worked on the flowers throughout the first three weeks and then learned the basket weave during the last class.
The flowers were made using buttercream and royal icing. I liked making the royal icing flowers better than the buttercream ones, as they look more realistic to me. We also learned how to use color flow to fill in pictures.
I loved learning the basket weave and will definitely use it in future cakes. It's not as hard as it looks although it does require some concentration or you can get lost really easily.
The cake suffered some "trauma" on the way home from class, and I didn't have enough buttercream to fix it. I'm still really pleased with it and everything I learned in the second course.
This would make a fantastic Easter cake! Can't wait for my next class... gum paste & fondant- yippee!
