Course 2 – Class 2May 31, 2009
Better late than never to post this. 🙂
I’ve had a bit of a blogging block as of late… not so much that I don’t have anything to blog about (I HAVE TONS) but I haven’t had a ton of time to sit down and do it.
So, in class two of the Wilton Course 2 cake decorating class we learned how to make characters etc. out of color flow. We also started learning some royal icing flowers: violets, violet leaves, and apple blossoms… and I tried some more victorian roses, which I STILL haven’t mastered. It was a lot of fun though.
I won’t lie though, I was having a really off night that night, and I hadn’t colored my icings yet etc. and I had forgotten cardboard to make my color flow on, so I ended up just watching during class. That’s alright though, I had a great cake decorating night a few nights later to work on using color flow, and practicing those royal icing flowers.
Without further adieu, photos:
We had to make color flow birds for our cake (at least we were supposed to) but after making some birds I was having so much fun working with the color flow, I tried making some other things as well. Apparently I’m the only one in the class that actually enjoyed using the color flow. It was like making stained glass figures.
I just kept making some other figures. Then I finally figured that I should work on my flowers.
I got a little bit better as I went along, but flowers take practice!
