I’m happy to report that as of Thursday evening, I am a Cake Class graduate!
I found the pacing this week to be a lot more relaxing than last week’s flurry of decorating lessons; our curriculum for this week consisted of learning how to print and do cursive writing…
[Sidenote: Lesson learned: the icing recipe for when you do writing asks for 1/4 tsp of piping gel + thin consistency icing. I omitted the piping gel because, in all honesty, I didn’t want to open my container for a mere 1/4 tsp, and I didn’t believe it could really make a difference. I was wrong! Error in judgement! Use the gel!!! Your writing will be more fluid and will adhere to your cake].
…and how to make a Ribbon Rose. I loved learning how to make this flower!!
For the final hour of our class, we dedicated ourselves to creating our unique cake masterpieces.
I’d like to give a very big THANK YOU to Shay, my wonderful instructor. Shay really made the course fun. The mood was light, yet we did learn; Shay is personable, relaxed, and knowledgeable, and I just had a great time attending class each week. Thanks so much, Shay! I definitely know a lot more tricks and techniques than when I walked in the door for Class #1!
My classmates kindly granted permission for me to show their cakes on the blog. Enjoy the cake parade!
All in all, I’m very happy that I enrolled in this course. I look forward to making cakes for family celebrations, in the future. Mom and I have already discussed our strategy: she will bake the cakes and I will play decorate them. Win-win!
