My first cake class

I started my cake decorating class last night. I'm taking it at a local cake and candy bakery and the teacher is awesome. She's been the owner of the store for 22 years and really knows what she is talking about. We learned how to split, fill, crumb coat, and frost a cake. We also learned how to fill the bags, mix frosting and use all the tips. Some of this was review but it was nice getting a different perspective on it. We could then decorate our cake any way we wanted to. I think my cake is destined for a wedding!



Sorry about the poor photos, I had to take the photo inside and at night. Not alot of natural light!! I did a shell border around the bottom and top. I also used a cookie cutter to put the heart template on top and then just traced it.



Not really my 'style', but it's sooo tasty! I filled it with bavarian cream. Next week we learn all sorts of different flowers, how to do basket weave and lattice work. I love this class already!!



Thanks for stopping by!!

How fun! I've always wanted to take a cake class. When my babies were merely babes, I tried to teach myself. Didn't do half bad, but there is nothing like being taught the right way.

You did a fantastic job. And Bavarian Creme...YUM! Has to be one of my favorites. You have me drooling here...lol! Can't wait to see more pics of future masterpieces! XO

Wow, that's great! That's such a neat thing to know how to do, you're going to get so much value out of being able to decorate cakes. You'll be in high demand at family functions I'm sure!
