Last night was day 3 of my wilton cake decorating class. We are learning to make shapes and designs with buttercream. I started out with homemade yellow butter cupcakes, with chocolate chips. Very yummy. I had to taste a one right out of the oven!
The frosting was made using palm oil, powdered sugar, water, wilton's meringue, and food coloring. I try to stay away from trans fats, so this is a great alternative.
The class was so much fun! I learned how to make little bear faces, a baby face, grapes and clowns.
For the brown, I actually used cocoa powder. This worked great!
I've worked with buttercream before but this is the first time that I've taken any formal training. I really enjoyed it and our teacher is a sweetheart.
I loved this little design of a baby peeking out of a pram.
You know what they say- presentation is everything! So, if I really want to get good, I have to be able to make the cake beautiful as well as delicous!
