Wilton Cake Decorating Class- Lesson 3

Here’s some highlights from my 3rd week of the Wilton cake decorating classes.

I finally figured out this week that it was better to come prepared with my piping bags filled and tipped! I have to say the prep work for the classes is quite intense and time consuming. I felt like a real student rushing to get my materials ready Sunday night.

This week we worked on different flower designs with various tips and decorating cupcakes- I’m pretty sure this was my favorite lesson, we had a lot of creative freedom to decorate our cupcakes however we wanted- testing out different tips and colors. We first practiced on flower nails.

My blue buttercream came out so beautiful, I loved the deep rich color. I also learned how to create my favorite designs: little rosettes with tip 16- small star. 2013-09-23 19.41.35

I was not a big fan of the “mums” which honestly just looked like crazy hair to me, but I had to try out the interesting looking tip. 2013-09-23 19.53.41

I definitely loved making these large rose designs on the cupcakes. Our instructor taught us an super-secret NOT in the Wilton course: using tip 2D (usually used to make the plumerias) to create these roses!
