Cake Decorating Fun

This weekend I did something I've wanted to do since I was about 10. I took a cake decorating class at the local cake supply shop! It was a 4 hour workshop, and I really loved it.

There were 9 of us in the workshop. We each got a Styrofoam cake to decorate and lots of parchment paper to practice on.


Everyone thought the basket weave technique was pretty cool. It took a long time, so I only went half way around.


We also learned a few borders, some small flowers (the teacher made those blue ones), and what every girl wants to learn...roses! Mine turned out surprisingly well.


I got a set of tips a few weeks ago so I could practice at home. I can't wait to do some more frosting art. I wish that cake had been real. mmmmm

Roses are hard to do! I tried once and failed miserably!

Your decorating looks fantastic! Hard to believe that was your first class!

Wow, that is awesome!! But I'm a sucker for some cake and I might have found myself eating it - foam base and all - when others weren't looking.

Beautiful job!

You mean that's not real? It looks so good! You did a great job. I would love to take a class like this some time. :)
