Wedding Cake Class Final

Well, yesterday was the final for my class: to make a wedding cake.

It went pretty well. My cake wasn't perfect, but it came out pretty good. My teacher said she really liked it, so I'll take that as a good sign.

Here are a couple pictures I took (the ONLY ones I took).

The fondant roses I made for my cake.

The finished product. There are a few imperfections, but it's pretty good for me; for my skill level.
Next week, we have to go to class, to clean up the kitchen, and we're also having a potluck. Then, the semester is OVER.
I can't believe class is (almost) over already. It feels like it just started, and now it's ending. I really enjoyed the class, and learning how to do all the different types of decorations for cakes. I can't wait to put those to good use!!!

Midterm Cake

Wow, it's been quite a while since my last post!!

I started my cake decorating class back in February, and it is going well so far.

My midterm was this past Tuesday, it it went as well as can be expected.

We had to make a birthday/party cake, and I chose to do a Baymax cake (from the movie Big Hero Six). It took me about 3 1/2 to 4 hours to finish it, and it came out pretty good.

It wasn't great, but it was good. My teacher said that I did well, though, so I'll take it!!

Here is a picture of my completed midterm cake (which I was allowed to take home):

I enjoyed making it, but am so glad the midterm is over.
The next big project for class is the final, where we have to make a wedding cake. I hope that goes as well as the midterm went, as I am not quite that confident right now.
I can't believe there's a month left of school to go (four classes over four weeks for me). How has that happened? It feels like class just started, and now we're almost done!! I guess that's what happens when you're having fun!
