Well, I did it! Tonight I finished the Wilton Course 2 at Hobby Lobby. The instructor was Lori Cottrell, who made it a lot of fun. Throughout this course I mainly learned how to make flowers out of frosting and royal icing. My final cake was an oval strawberry cake with a cream cheese filling. It had basket weaving on the sides and a rope border. All of the flowers are made with royal icing. The flowers include Apple Blossoms, Violets, Mums, Daffodils, Victorian Roses, Pansies, Daisies, Primroses, and Rose Buds. I really enjoy decorating cakes and can't wait to start Wilton Course 4 at Hobby Lobby next week. It is a gumpaste and fondant class, which will run four weeks.
