Wilton 101, done


Hey, I finished my first Wilton cake decorating class. I have always wanted to take classes for pastry, cake decorating and the like. And you know quite honestly I never did for fear of getting fatter or people thinking- hey this girl is going to get even fatter. And you know what I no longer care and just took the course anyway. After a while the frosting is more like a painting product than an alluring frosting product.

Putting all my fears aside I took the class and was happy to find a great group of ladies in class. Should that be a surprise- no, because really foodie type people are just plain cool, yah know!

So here is a last class picture taking of some of the cakes in the class.


The woman who did this cake works at a bakery and she is just plain talented.

The woman that did this cake also works at the bakery. See her lovely roses! They are so sweeping and pretty.
This woman here- about as self critical as I am (now stop that) because she made one beautiful cake.
This woman here is currently in the process of becoming a pastry chef. She said she was just using up her black frosting but what a stunning effect. I can see she has a future in her field.

well you did a way better job than me. cake deocrating is my down fall. I even have a hard time with cupcake frosting. one of these days I plan on taking a class like you are doing. what's the next lesson?

Hi Dawn- flowers and the basket weave is next. Its really about practice. The classes afford you the time to sit down and actually practice. I really need to be practicing more. The class is really worth it- I say do it!

Ooooh, how I wish I could decorate a cake. We don't have ANY classes locally for this. I am so envious.

Your cake is beautiful; all are very well done!

My Mom and my Aunts all took classes and they would practice making roses all week long and we had a fridge full of Roses all colors one summer and I would bring my friends inside to take a look. Now I was thinking of taking a class but I am all thumbs. Those cakes look so pretty in your photos. Just remember to practice and practice like my Mom and Aunts as they were experts by the end of that summer:)

All the cakes are so beautiful. I think you did a good job, very good piping skill.

I'm so glad you embraced your fear and went with it! I can't wait to see more of your creations. Perhaps you'll be working in a bakery next!

well shoot. this makes my poor attempts at cake-decorating look even more shoddy. i didn't think it was possible. :)

I'd be awful proud to show off your cake or any of those. I've thought about taking one of those classes too. I actually peeked in on one at Michael's this weekend.

I like yours, Lori. I like the less is more approach you took. It looks delicate and lovely. :)

Rachel said...

these are GORGEOUS! So impressive--I am dying to take this class and am glad to hear that you enjoyed it.

Very nice! I took the first two classes but my instructor wasn't very skilled at it. Some of my flowers were better than hers (She said it first!) so it was almost a waste of my money but I did have fun. Needless to say I couldn't practice what I never really learned so I need to go back.

Lori, I tried voting but don't see where to...help?

Isn't a lot of fun, and they look so pretty!! I took several classes years ago, along w/my daughter and since then she's has a healthy little side business going, she'd like to open up a shop of her own.
