Shalene and I survived our 2nd cake decorating class. That poor teacher seems to have a wonderful gift of patience!!!! (there are 4 other girls Shalenes age and 4 other ladies in the class)
We learned to transfer a pattern and some basics with that. Shalen and Ihad such a problem with our icing.....it was too thick!!! (LONG and I mean LONG story!!! Lets just say that the first batch Shalene made -- well she didn't read the directions correctly and added a "bit" too much water -- we tried to thicken it but it kindda ran off her cake. So we did another batch -- this batch worked but we didn't realize that we were to make some thinner icing as well for the decorating part -- we had a mess at class (we weren't the only ones, thankfully)
So, between the icing and a BAD package of "bags" that kept breaking!!! The teacher told us to contact the company because something was wrong -- I first thought it was the "person "--ummmmm ME -- that was filling the bags and cutting the tips who was messing up.........but when the bags started having stuff ooooozzzzzzzing out the sides of the bag in little squirts, I realized it wasn't me. SO we did get our cake accomplished.....and we started learning to create rose...NO, the ones above are NOT mine. I'm a beginner you must remember that. Mine DID NOT look like the ones above, but I can always dream.
Hopefully my brain will remember to take my camera next week and take some photos. 2 more classes in this beginners and than we get to move to the 2nd class.
I must say, I'm enjoying my time learning and spending it with my precious daughter Shalene. Its always nice to have one on one time with my kids.
