Well, the fall semester has started. I am taking an Advanced Cake Decorating class this semester, on Thursday evenings.
My teacher is really nice, and I think I'm going to really enjoy this class.
The first week, we just went over what we will be doing during the semester. We get to make gumpast flowers, make 3-D/sculpted cakes, and work on more piping skills.
This past week, we did some practice with covering a cake (in this instance we used cake dummies, so we didn't have to waste anything) in fondant, and practicing piping skills.
Including me, there are four students in this class, which is the smallest class I have ever been in. But it's actually kind of nice, because there's more space for us to work at.
Here is what I came up with, when we practiced with piping:
It came out alright. I like it.
I am really looking forward to the rest of the semester!!
