I know this post is about a week late, but it has been one heck of a week!
For this class session we went over a few things. Writing, stars, filling things in. It was a good portion of the “basic” stuff.
For my cake, I took two 9 inch cakes, iced, and some cookie cutters. Lightly pressed them in to make outlines, then filled in with stars. I would recommend getting the 3 star tip if you are doing anything large, it makes things WAY easier. I’ll be using that tip when I make my football helmet cakes this weekend for the super bowl.
Here’s a few pics of my finished cake!
Here’s a nice shot that shows you just how smooth I got it. I used the parchment paper technique and it’s really easy and leaves a great finish. (Please ignore all the junk behind my cake).
Off thing that happened: my icing faded. I used green and then a really light purple for the decorations. The purple faded back to white! I have no idea how that happened.
Class tonight (day 3) went well, pictures/update by the end of the week, I promise!
