Wilton Cake Decorating - Class II
Last night was the last night of my part II Wilton cake decorating class. This class has focussed on royal icing. I have really loved this class as most if has been about making icing flowers, which is one of the whole reasons why I have gone to cake decorating classes. I want to be able to simply but effectively decorate cupcakes and other cakes with little flowers.
Last night we got to decorate a cake with the flowers we had made other nights in the course. I had also made some flowers at home. Not all the flowers are perfect, but when you look at the cake as a whole, I am pretty pleased with the effect.
The cake itself is a yummy almond Madeira cake which I filled with a mixture of soaked and semi pureed dried apricots, mixed with cream. The cake was made in an oval cake tin which is quite cute for a change. I’m posting heaps of photos – sorry, but I am really pleased with this.
I have already booked in for the next class which is fondant icing, but it’s not until September.
