My Second Cake Decorating Class

Happy Valentine's Day!  I hope your day is filled with feeling loved and loving other people!

Yesterday, I had my second cake decorating class.  It was a ton of fun.  I have been practicing using the bags and tips all week and I was ready to tackle a cake!

Being the over eager student that I am, I practiced everything for the week ahead prior to class.  (Yep, I am one of those students.  I can't deny it).  I also found a great resource for learning some basic cake decorating.  Did you know that Wilton has its own you tube channel?  I am now in love.  Here is a link to the main you tube channel.

I watched two videos last week in preparation for class.  If you are interested in learning some new skills, these are a great resource to start with.

This is a video on how to ice a cake using the tip 789.  It is so much easier and smoother than using a spatula.

The second video that I viewed was how to make Rosettes.  I thought these were beautiful and easy to do!

I utilized my new learned skills to decorate my cake in class today.  The teacher is great and very helpful so it is nice to try new things in class.  I wanted my cake to be decorated for Valentine's Day.  I used a transfer technique for the heart, it was my first time so it wasn't perfect.  I also want to work on the shells that I did the border along the bottom.  They aren't quite right.  Other than that, I am very pleased with my first attempt at decorating a cake.

What do you think?

I can't wait to show you some of the ideas I want to try on future cakes.
