My very first Cake Decorating Class – Detailed in Pictures

My first cake decorating class was tons of fun and I can’t wait to go back for more.  This was a Basic Cake Decorating class.  The cakes were pre-baked for us and the instructor covered everything from tips and tricks to bake the best cakes, how to fill a piping bag,  how to make buttercream frosting, and we even made delicate roses to adorn our cakes with!

Here was the station when I first arrived.  They supplied everything we needed — and look — they even served wine!!

We practiced piping techniques:

We leveled our cakes:

We piped a border and filled our cakes with raspberry filling:

We practiced icing our cakes:

Then we smoothed the icing out:

And check out this cool basket weave pattern we piped:

Then we colored our buttercream and created beautiful roses:

The instructor even provided boxes so that we could take our masterpieces home:

My favorite parts of the class were learning the basket weave technique and how to make buttercream roses.  Easter is right around the corner and I can see myself using these techniques to make a beautiful spring cake!

If you’ve ever considered trying a class like this, my recommendation is to DO IT!!  I learned a lot and it’s fun being in class with others that share your same passions.
