I can’t believe a month has flown by already! It feels just like yesterday I had butterflies in my tummy before going to my first cake decorating class.
This past Monday I had my final class where we got to design and decorate an entire cake by ourselves. I was so excited I could hardly keep myself from decorating the entire thing before I got there!!
Here’s my final cake–
it’s totally g-free with both devils food and vanilla cake layers!
About four days before class I pre-made 40 star-drop flowers with buttercream icing. Within an hour they were completely dried and fairly rock hard. I let them dry on wax paper so that it would be easy to remove them.
Then I practiced making buttercream roses. After three hours of frustration, I came up with twelve roses.
Actually, let me rephrase that:
I produced six blue roses.
The Hubby produced six pink roses. On his first try.
I was quite frustrated! But grateful… it probably would’ve been two hours extra for me to get those pink roses done haha!
Once I got to class, completing my cake was a cinch.
I added white “vines” that cascaded down the sides and piped a shell border along the base so I could attach the star-drop flowers.
And of course I needed to come up with a special occasion for this fancy cake!
Guess who’s birthday is this Thursday? Bama’s!
