Cake Decorating- Course 1, Class 3

I took my 3rd class last Thursday. We took a dozen cupcakes and practiced decorating them different ways. Thursday was also my brother's birthday and I met my family out to eat before I went to my class. I rushed to get out the door and I totally forgot to take my kit! I remembered the icing and cupcakes-but forgot all of my tools.

My teacher and other people in the class were nice enough to loan me their tips and things so that I could practice too. I didn't participate as much because I didn't have everything that I needed.

We learned how to make figures and clowns. This is a picture of a bear face. Again, I didn't have everything that I needed, so this was the best that I could do.

Here is the clown body-but I left the head at home.

My aunt came in town Saturday and we decided to celebrate my brother's and my aunt's birthdays together. I decided to do a red velvet cake even though cream cheese icing is a lot harder to work with. My husband took a few pictures for me. Here is a picture of Evan asking me if he could help.

And here he is playing with the icing.

This is where he reached over and tried to help-OOPS.

Here is the finished cake. It was pretty hard to get the cream cheese icing thick enough to create figures with and this was the best that I could do. My mom told me just to do clowns because I didn't have much time to make the cake that morning. I wish I would have had more time to make the colors how I wanted, but I was in a rush. The cake tasted amazing!

I'm supposed to take the last cake class in the course tonight, but I don't think that I'm going to go. The babies tag teamed me last night and I got about 3 hours of sleep. I'm SOOO tired and I honestly miss my kids way too much while I'm gone. Everyone told me to take the class for some "me" time, but I don't like "me time". I'd rather be with my kids any day!

Tonight we're supposed to finish learning roses. We already started learning them and I think that I'll be able to finish on my own. I can look at the pictures and look up a tutorial online if I need any extra help. I did make a cake last night so I'll try to decorate it on my own even if I don't go to my class.

Pin It!

That red velvet cake looks delicious?

The cake turned out good. I think the best cake I made when I took the class was the one with clowns because I figured clowns were supposed to look funny. Mine looked funny for sure. You got the basics. You can learn the roses.

Great job, Dee! I am so impressed.

I have to tell you we don't know red velvet cake around here. The first time I ever ate red velvet cake was last month. I happened upon a cupcake bakery that sold them...I had to give it a try. Yum!!

Maybe next time you can frost in cream cheese then decorate with regular frosting? Or is that taboo.

I understand about "me" time vs. "missing my kids" time. Sometimes I only need a few minutes to miss them. :)

Looks yummy! I'm so glad you took the class, but I do understand what you mean about being away from the little ones!
Love the headless clown....too funny.........

Nichole said...

Robin said...

Oh how fun....
Your brother's cake turned out so cute. :-)

Hope your day is beautiful

Mighty M said...

Turned out really good - glad you are learning so much with this class. And I hope you got some rest last night!

Well, at least now you can say you tried, and from the looks of your cupcakes and cake, you have definitely learned a few things. Sometimes I still feel guilty when I am having "me time" and I agree about feeling like you just want to be with your kids. There are times I can't wait for a night out and then when it comes I miss the kids so much anyway. But, you have defintiely inpsired me to look and see if there is a cake decorating class near me. It's something I've always wanted to try!

You are doing a great job! In my last class of course two one whole side of my cake slid down & almost off due to the humidity. Looking @ your beautiful work reminded me. Thanks for the giggle!

The Jacobsen Family! said...

Awesome!! You did a great job. How do you get your letters (in Happy Birthday) to look so nice? I'm telling you, every time I try to do letters, they come out horribly!!
As you know, I'm right there with you on the "me time" thing. =) But, that class looks awesome. Glad you got to do it and share with us!

I've taken cooking classes, but a cake decorating class sounds like so much fun. Looks like you had a great time!

Great job! I recently took the Wilton class too, I've been meaning to post pictures of my cakes. The clowns were a bit tricky for me.
