I finished Cake Decorating 2 last week. It was a lot of fun and I’m always looking for an excuse to bake and decorate a cake.
Refreshing my skills from Cake Decorating 1: loop border, shell border and roses.
Fondant class – the boxed stuff tastes terrible, but it sure looks pretty. Some time I will try making my own.
I made cupcakes for a friend’s bake sale to try mums. You can tell I started with purple. I gradually got better by the last pink flower.
I also made coffee-flavored cupcakes with espresso creme filling and buttercream frosting and chocolate cupcakes with chocolate peanut butter frosting.
And finally, the cake. I spent a little too much time on the mums cupcakes, so I was rushed on the top, but I like how the borders turned out.
The cake was a layer of chocolate, coffee and vanilla with espresso cream in the middle.
