I have completed my Wilton Cake Decorating Basics course! I'm so excited, I learned so much!
I've now started the second course, Flowers & Cake Design.
These are pictures of my final Basics cake!
I decided to use a technique I'd learned in class for this cake- piping a dam to keep the filling from spilling out. I used strawberry jam, and it was simple and delicious!
This is the cake stacked.
And this is it iced! I felt like it was the smoothest icing job I'd ever done. As insanely sugary as the Wilton class buttercream is, it really is great for icing cakes.
My boyfriend plays football for the Shenandoah University Hornets. I made the cake for their homecoming game last week :)
I highly recommend taking the Wilton Cake Decorating classes. They are an incredible deal- I'm paying $67.50 for TWELVE CLASSES.
There are some places in Northern Virginia where just one class is $75.
