Cake Course 2, Class 1

18 Apr

Oh my goodness.  I am in love with my new teacher. (Okay, so probably not really, but she is ahmazing!)  I know this class is going to be great!  She has so much knowledge that she can share with us, I’m excited.

Tonight we didn’t make a cake, but instead we made flowers!

Here are my fondant calla lilies:

Calla Lillies

Here are my fondant Apple Blossoms:

Here are my fondant violets:


Here are my gumpaste sweet peas:

My horrible fondant carnation:


And next week we are making a fondant bow.  We had to make the loops this week to allow them time to dry.  Make sure you check back next week to see the finished bow.

I love my flowers, but I have no idea to do with them.  I would feel horrible just throwing them away.   Any ideas on what to do with them? Leave me a comment.

    I am really impressed. You did a great job.

    I guess you could have a party and decorate a cake with them.

    Your calla lilies remind me of the ones in our yard in California, do you remember them?

    Beautiful! My last class of Course 1 is next week, I’m having so much fun, I can’t wait to move on!

    Awesome!! Those look amazing. Even your “horrible” carnation looked pretty fantastic. It’s amazing what you can do with cakes.

    Maybe you could make a cute boquet for a small cake just for fun?! Anyone’s birthday coming up??

    I would say all the flowers are gorgeous, with the calla lily being my favorite. You surely have a knack for this cake decorating so keep on ‘icing”. My birthday is in November….

    I love all the flowers! We didn’t learn some of those in Wilton. Now I am jealous. Great job!

    Those flowers are gorgeous- great job! (I barely passed course one, I should really go back and try again, I love seeing all this awesome stuff!)

    You’re supposed to decorate a cake with your flowers, silly. You can always top cupcakes with them too…

    Those are boooootiful Nina! I know what you can do with those lovely little blooms. You can make a cake, put on the flowers, and send it to me!
