SO…i had my last class of cake decorating course one. It went pretty well. learned to make roses, which was cool. now if ONLY i remember which end of the tip is UP, i will be just fine.
my plan WAS to post pictures of the cake, which turned out alright….but then i left it in my car a little too long and it melted and got all flung around inside the box. so it looked like shit. and no picture. ah well…maybe next time.
i used a cupcake recipe from Vegan Cupcakes Take over the World, and made a cake out of it. i was pleased to say that it actually worked really well. then i made vegan cream cheese frosting, which was also delicious. but then, of course, i used the wilton recipe for my piping icing…not vegan. and not really all that delicious. but it tastes not bad overall.
i will make more cakes soon and post pictures. i bought some gum paste to play with. FUN!
my mom is visiting, which is great.
not only is SHE fabulous herself…but she seems to think that everything i do/make is fabulous.
a mother’s love, i tell ya. certainly good for the self esteem.
i really am lucky.
