Yesterday was my last cake decorating class. I’m sad it’s over because I loved meeting the people in my classes plus I learned some really great things! This class I learned to work with fondant and gum paste. I had tried my hand at fondant before and realized that I had no idea what I was doing. Now I know how to work with it and manipulate it to do what I want. It’s pretty cool stuff!
This is my final cake project. We needed to bake a cake and have it ready to cover with fondant and decorate with fondant, gum paste, or a combination of the two. So I chose to bake a chocolate cake, torte it, and fill and cover it will chocolate butter cream. In class, I covered it with pink fondant…
Then applied light pink leaves…
And inserted dark pink gum paste roses which I made earlier in the week so they were dry. I also added some fondant/gum paste leaves to make the arrangement real. I placed the finished cake on the cake board I made with my imprint mat the week before. And my project was complete.
I had fun in this class and look forward to working with fondant and gum paste again!
***I apparently never gave credit where credit is due. I was fortunate enough to find a class at Michael’s. My instructor was Charity St. John who was awesome! I totally recommend taking a class with her. But if you are not in this area you should check out your local Michael’s or Joann’s. Good luck!***
