Cake Decorating

Shalene and I have officially started our cake decorating class this evening!!!!! It was so much fun. We learned basics, some of which I did know but some that I didn't. I found it to be very interesting.
You see, when Alyssa was at Penn View for part of her home ec. class they did cake decorating....she LOVES to do this and Shalene and I decided that we wanted to as well. (Since we cyber school now, we don't have home ec...well, unless you call me making job lists!!!!)
So off to Michael's we went for cake decorating classes. We will go every Friday this month for Class 1......once we move on the Class 2 I think Alyssa plans on joining us. You will have to keep checking back - we will try to take pics of the things we do and you can see if we are learning and improving as we go or not!!!
So, next week we are to take a cake to class with us -- frosted the way we were taught today -- with different colors of icing ready to go. We will learn how to transfer an image. And we get to learn how to create ROSES!!!! But the best part -- taking it home to eat.....well, I don't know, I think I will enjoy the creative part as well.
Had a nice time with Shalene this evening and looking forward to learning.
I must confess -- this is NOT a cake that we created. We are on the very BASIC beginners class. Let me say that again.....VERY BASIC. But we can dream and hope that we will get that good.

Oh my gosh...I LOVE that cake! Is that one that you made??? I've always wanted to take a cake decorating class...deep down inside, who doesn't?? :) Have fun and please post some of your creations, I'd love to see them, and maybe it'll get me to sign up for them finally. I popped in to answer your question you left for me on my blog, but found myself lost in yours. ;) You have a beautiful blog, and I'll add you to my sidebar. Anyway, I got those rusty bells from
I love that site and they have soooo much fun stuff to offer. :) Have a great day Amy! :)

Ohhhh -- I wish that was the cake I made....I haven't graduated to that level yet, but I have hopes. We are just at the very beginning/basics.
