Wilton Course 4

My blog has been rather neglected of late and I must apologise for a rather short post. Hopefully next week will be better! This is the final cake I made for the fondant and gum paste Wilton course. To be honest it doesn’t really display any of the “skills” we learnt in the course, mainly because I didn’t like many of the effects we were taught – I prefer a simpler style.

I did like the contrast between the pale pink icing and dark chocolate cake for this cake. The wee flowers are dogwood rose shapes which give quite a contemporary look.

Fingers crossed for more blogging next week – I have been baking, just not blogging!

I've done the other 3 courses at milly's and was contemplating course 4. Decided to sign up for the christmas cookie class instead!

I think this cake is just gorgeous. I hate really elaborate cakes - I prefer something that looks both pretty and edible.
