My mom and I have been taking a cake class. We took one a couple of years ago and really enjoyed it. Then I started work and it was too exhausting to do that and teach, so we are doing it over the summer. We go on Monday nights and it is a lot of fun.
This is my cake from last week. It may look pretty but it was a COMPLETE disaster. I just laugh about it now. We are required to make our own icing (which calls for Crisco). My dad said we were NOT allowed to use Crisco because it is so bad for you, so we used butter instead. AWFUL! It wouldn't have been so bad if we hadn't put the icing in a cooler... lets just say there was icing running everywhere and ALL over the place. It didn't even make in home in one piece because the top slid off. Needless to say, it met the trash can!
These are my cupcakes from this week. We made the icing the real way and they turned out cute. Remy took them to work for his co-workers. (sorry for the awful photos, my camera broke and my phone camera only works one way- I have to buy a new camera)
We start doing fondant in July and I am REALLY excited!!!
