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.
