Decorating class!

I recently attended another really fun class at 'do it with icing'. It turned out that the instructor, Casey had worked at 'Just Fabulous', which sounded like an absolutely wonderful bakery. I'm so sad it went out of business, I hope everyone managed to go onto bigger and better things. Casey is teaching another class at do it with icing on the 13th March, making a cake treasure chest. I'd highly recommend attending if you're interested in learning more about cake decorating.

We were instructed to bring a plain iced cake, this is my first time practicing with a 'dummy'. It was really nice as it had perfect edges and didn't lean or anything! We were told we could go anywhere we wanted with our designs, I decided to go with a pretty simple present with bows as I've never tried that before. It came out really well in the end, I was very happy with the result.

This is definitely a lesson in going for it and trying new designs, it came out so well that I ought to try doing a dummy cake more often just to learn technique.

I also learned about a new tool, the extruder. It produced a really nice uniform rope, which I twisted around a dowel for a little pizazz, I'll be hoping to try one really soon!
