It’s been a long 3 months away but I’m excited to share about my most recent adventure. Cake decorating class! I’m taking the class through Party Favors in Brookline and I couldn’t
be more excited about it. It’s a three week class where we learn everything from basic frosting, to flowers, to fondant! And the best part of this class is that I don’t have to make the cake or frosting to bring with me. Less prep!
Last Wednesday was my first class and it was a ton of fun but I have to tell you I was a little deflated after. I walked into class all confident thinking I’d be the star. I mean how couldn’t I, right? Well making pretty things with cupcakes isn’t as easy as it looks. Sure I can do all sorts of swirls on my cupcakes but that doesn’t transition over into frosting animals and flowers apparently.
The first class was on cupcakes and we started with a few different kinds of flowers. Let me tell you, getting the right pressure and movement of the frosting is tough. After flowers we move into animals. Penguins, pigs, and dogs to be specific. The penguin wasn’t too bad, it’s pretty basic. But as you can see my little piggy isn’t as cute as he could be. And don’t even get me started on the dog. It looked like a turd and I couldn’t get the shape I wanted so I scrapped it for another penguin since those little guys are pretty cute.
Clearly I need to practice a little more. I’m nervous that we’re going to be working on roses this week because my attempt to teach myself was disastrous. Keep your fingers crossed that with some one-on-one teaching I’ll get a little better at this!
