I reciently took part in a Wilton cake class. It was with the new class formula that breaks it up into distinct groups, vice levels.
The groups are:
- Decorating Basics
- Fondant & Gum Paste
- Flowers & Design
You can take any class at anytime. There are no more prerequisits. I think this makes things a lot easier, say for someone who knows they only want to work with Fondant, they don’t have to waste their time and money on Buttercream frosting.
The class I just finished with was Decorating Basics. It was fun! We made 3+ cakes, cupcakes, and cookies. I have made so many batches of buttercream frosting, the recipe is seared into my brain!
Here is what I ended with after the first class:
Basic white cake. We practiced frosting the cake. I took it home and decorated a little more. Valentines day was right around the corner!
We also used cookies as a way to practice piping the star tip!
This was not in the class. I made an extra cake and, not wanting to waste, I made a quick lemon glaze and viola! – lemon cake w/ lemon glaze!
All these goodies went to some very deserving Marines! Thank you for all you do!
Next up: Part 2 of the Decoration Basics! Stay tuned!
