|My final cake from the Flowers and Cake Design course!|
1. How to make various flowers using different materials including gum paste, fondant, and royal icing. Did you know that you can make gum paste and royal icing flowers in advance and after they harden, they can be stored in an air-tight container for up to a year! Just bring them out when you need to decorate and they're still edible! Oh the wonders of sugar...
2. How to make the Wilton rose (Finally! I've been waiting for this!). I definitely prefer these over the roses we learned to make in the first course.
|Watching the instructor...|
|Then Piggy KL and I made our first Wilton roses!|
|Practice on the practice board first|
|Giving the basket weave a go on our cakes|
|Completed basket weave - not too shabby for our first attempt!|
