Last Night Wilton Course 3


Tuesday night was my last night of Wilton course 3. We had to do a tiered cake. I based mine on the one on the cover of one of my Peggy Porchen books. I was quite pleased with how it turned out, and I think with more practice I will get my roses looking a bit better. The cake is red velvet cake and I used the recipe from the Confetti Cakes recipe book.





I have really enjoyed the three wilton courses I have done this year. There is one more course and I am already booked in to do that next year. I know I am never going to be a great cake decorator, but I feel confident now to have a go, knowing that I can do it “good enough”!

I haven’t been doing any cooking this week, so can’t even tell you what dinner was last night as I have been out at functions every single night (other than Tuesday which was cake decorating). Next week is only two functions to attend, so there will be a bit more blog substance!

So, once again, a post with more photos than words!

You should be very proud of your talents!

Holy cow! That is way fancier and prettier than any course 3 cake I've ever seen. I wonder if course 3 is different in your neck of the woods.... as in, it looks like they do fondant? We did a tiny bit of fondant in the first three courses here, and now they offer a fondant and gumpaste course...

Anyway, I'm off on a tangent. Your cake looks fantastic! You can be proud of yourself :)
