Course 1 – Class 1April 7, 2009
So, I wasn’t going to post anything about it until I was sure that I was doing it, but I started the Wilton Cake decorating Course 1 class last night!
Last night was basically going over the course book, the instructor telling us “what you have to have, what Wilton wants you to have, what is a piece of crap, and some ways I think work better.” So far I love our instructor, she is a pistol, to put it lightly. She has no trouble telling you how she feels about stuff, how she does it, and what she skips.
We watched her torte a cake, fill it, crumb it, ice it, and do a shell border, roses, leaves and write on it. Our “homework” for next class is that when we come in we need at least an 8″ cake baked, (filling is optional) crumbed and iced… with a recipe of icing in 4 different colors, but we can mix the colors there if we want. I believe we are doing the ‘rainbow cake’ next week.
It’s strange that I’m so excited about this, but I really am. My mom decorated cakes for a living when I was younger… she did wedding cakes, party cakes, just about anything, and i always thought they were so beautiful. Hopefully I got a few of those genes in the mix! Now I just want to get in the kitchen, bake and DECORATE!
So here’s to cake decorating, I am so excited!
