Where I have been...for the past three wednesdays...

Ok, now I am able to spill. I haven't told anyone what I have been doing for the past three weeks on Wednesday nights...simply because, well I didn't want people to ask what my 'final project' looked like. I didn't know if I was going to be good at it, or even if I was going to 'like it'. So here is the big reveal.....

I have been taking a Wilton cake decorating class. I am sure you all thought it was going to be a big reveal...but here it is, my final cake. Made from scratch wilton's own buttercream frosting, hand decorated and colored by yours truly. And yes, I was the ONLY one with orange roses (those are all handmade also).

If you are curious about cake decorating, take this class! I took it at Joann's in Lynnwood, for three weeks/3 hours a sesson, I decorated to my hearts content. The first class was all about frosting! Now I have my little cake 'caddy' with my tools, pipping bags, and tricks of the trade. I will plan on making wilton II, III and fondant, but I would like to practice more before I get ahead of myself. Here are more pics of my final cake (and NO they didn't grade it...thank goodness!)







Yes, that is hand piped roses that I made!

Frosting could have been a bit smoother, but I thought it looked pretty good!

That is so incredibly awesome! I've been telling Derek we need to get out more and learn new stuff. You did such a beautiful job, and it must feel so good to have a new skill under your belt!

Fantastic Sara! I've seen quite a few 'first' cake projects and this is one of the best I've seen! I'm so impressed. Well done.

Um, ok, you're amazing! Nice work! I love the "buttons" on this cake - we had them on our wedding cake too! Way to go little mama!
