Here are my final cake projects from Wilton's courses 2 and 3. They are both lemon pound cake. The first is covered with basket weave in buttercream icing with fondant flowers on the top. The second is covered and decorated with fondant. We also learned to do a lot of royal icing flowers, so pictures of those are at the bottom. Hello new job! No, literally - I might start teaching these classes starting in August. How exciting!?!?!
Roses, rosebuds, primroses, daffodils, violets, and little white flowers. Royal icing is like sugar candy that sits up nice and hard. You know those "Happy Birthday" letters you can buy at the store and put on your cake? Those are made with royal icing. Mine are prettier though :)
I so enjoy baking and decorating! If you live in the Southwest Virginia area and need a cake for an event shoot me a line!
