First let me tell you...the amount of icing I had to make to take to class was disgusting! She said , double the recipe, then double it again. WOW!
4 cups of Crisco, 4 lbs of powdered sugar! Made me like icing a little less. Making the icing was a MESS. Matt's kitchen was cloudy with powdered sugar and my black kitchenaid was grey.
I baked my cakes, and made my icing and off to class I went.
Tonight we worked on stars, zigzags and writing. Also how to level, cut in half, and stack a cake. Then how to ice it, and make it look nice. She did it so well last week, made it look so easy. It wasn't. I didn't take pictures of this process because it was very very messy, but I promise when I make it again (next weekend for momma's birthday) I will have Matt take pictures.
After we got our cakes iced, she said to tint our icing what ever color I wanted and decorate using our cake as a practice board. I found a new icing color at Walmart last night, that I think may be the winner for my Pink Velvet Cupcakes ( I want to put a link to the post here, but I can't figure it out, the link button is grayed out, Wordpress users help?!) Anyway, wanting to see this color in action I make pink, then I decided why not make a cake for Jacki , Tony and Anna! YAY!
Since I am taking them dinner tomorrow, I will also bring them dessert. :-D
OH! I forgot to mention! I signed up for course 2... it starts March 30. I will learn lots of flowers, fancy borders and basket weave :-D This time no hidden costs! I have everything I need in my kit! :-D
I can't wait to make cakes and decorate them for fun, or even better, for others!
