The Cakes (Wilton Course 1)

I have been taking a Wilton cake decorating class at Michael's (the most fun thing I have ever done). Here are some pictures.

This one says "BABIES!" because I took it to work. There were 6 or 7 ladies at my work who were or still are pregnant (some have delivered since then).

These cupcakes were for my friend Karla who moved to Chile.

These cupcakes were practice for lots of different little things.

This was the finale cake. The icing has tons of crumbs in it and the roses are jaggedy looking because my icing was too stiff, but at the same time I kind of like the way they look. Overall I was glad with the way it turned out.

nice work! the roses are SO frustrating to me. Yours look really pretty and full! I have jagged icing problems no matter what my consistency is, and then if its too thin they just glob together.

the "BABIES!!" cake cracks me up. I'm so happy that you are learning to decorate!! You totally have a leg up since you mom is a master!

I didn't even know you were taking that class. I want to do it some day! Your final cake looks SO good!

Awesome. The last cake looks like wedding quality to me!

I have been wanting to take the cake classes at Michael's my whole life and just never got around to it. Sad, huh? They look great, and someday your kids will thank you!:)
