I made a violet flavored cake with violet flavored frosting for Mom’s cake. The trick it to put just enough extract in without it tasting like soap. It was a success!
|Here is the first cake I decorated in class. It felt quite easy after the one I made for Mom’s birthday.|
|Here is the final cake. It was during this class when I learned about the corn syrup/piping gel trick to smooth out the frosting.|
Last month I signed up for the fondant and gum paste class. I really had a lot of fun with this class. It made me feel like a kid playing with clay. I thought working with fondant and gum paste would be much more difficult. My favorite part was learning how to make flowers. The botany classes that I had to take in college and grad school weren’t a complete waste. There is something captivating about shaping and forming a flower and seeing it come together before your very eyes.
