That's it for Course One!

Tonight was the last class of Course 1 of my cake decorating class and we finally learned how to make the famous Wilton rose. This is what they are SUPPOSED to look like:



I think my attempts could be more accurately described as carnations. My icing was way too thick and therefore my flowers came out a little wonky, but I kinda like them.





My classmate's were better. Bitch. Kidding, of course :)



We spent the first hour of class making roses and man the f-bombs were dropping like a war zone! They are frustrating little fuckers to make, but it was good for some laughs.

Next we practiced making sweet peas and bows and then it was time to decorate. I made another box mix cake because I wimped out again and it came out a little lopsided. I guess the actual baking part is just not my thing. I placed my red roses in a bunch and added some leaves, then I added black shells along the bottom and black dots around the top.









At the end of class we got our completion certificates. Woot!! Course 2 starts in February...
