I am so excited about sharing my new adventure in cupcaking! (I think I just coined a new word)
What started this new adventure was a book that I picked up at Barnes and Noble called, "Naughty Cakes" by Debbie Brown. I immediately fell in love with fondant and the idea of designing specialty cakes. I signed up for a class at Joann's to get a foundation in cake decorating but was not prepared for what I found....
It was love at first sight! I absolutely have fallen head over heels with cake decorating.
I recently completed my first Wilton Class. I learned how to properly bake, torte, fill and ice a cake. I also learned some really cool decorating techniques, such as how to make a Wilton Rose, sweetpeas, and also the shell and star borders.
This week I will start my 2nd set of classes and also a candy making class on Saturday.
I will be making a wedding cake with cupcakes for my cousin's wedding on Aug. 11th and 2 birthday cakes for next week for family members. I'll be sure to post them!
