Yes, Another Post About Cake!


I did this!!! Can you believe it?!? And the really amazing thing is that I carried this cake from the house to the car, the car to class, class to the car, car to the house, house to the car, and, finally, from the car to work. And all without dropping it. I felt like one of those contestants on the Food Network Cake Challenge, where they have to lift their 700 lb. cake and carry it to a separate table for display.

Except, you know, my cake was less than a pound. And in a convenient carrier. And only two layers. But still!


Last night was the end of Course 1 at Wilton University. I'm totally telling everyone I'm taking classes. What's that, you want to meet for drinks? Sorry, can't. I have class tonight at the university. We're learning royal icing techniques. The professor is a real stickler!


Actually, I am already enrolled in Course 2 which starts next week. I only have to make one cake for this class. And the instructor, Denise, could not be nicer! I highly recommend taking the classes with her at the Michael's at Easton. She made the first course so much fun.

wow!!! VERY pretty! I'm amazed but have to wonder how much of it is natural skill :) It can't all have just been taught!

It's gorgeous!!! I'm definitely impressed and you *might* have inspired me to take the class as well... :)

All of your cakes have been so pretty! I'm jealous. (but not enough to sign up for classes myself)

Very nice! Your roses are perfectly shaped! I took the classes at the Sawmill Michael's with Annette. The 2nd course is fun, too, though the royal icing pissed me off royally. You'll learn how to make *lots* of different flowers. Definitely consider taking all three levels - course 3 is fondant! Tastes like poop but looks real purty. :)
