Tiered Cake

Last Tuesday was the end of Course 3 of the Wilton Cake Decorating Class. With every class I feel so much more confident and pleased with the techniques I've learned. Course 3 was all about Fondant cakes.

Fondant is nothing but a mixture of Sugar and water, cooked till it forms a dough. The texture is a little stiffer than regular play dough. More info on Fondant
here.

Though its only sugar and water, after all the processing, the taste somehow appeals only to a few. As my instructor says, "you either like it or you don't"..no two ways about it.
I am still deciding whether I like it or not :-D

During the course we learned how to make Fondant Roses and leaves, more Royal Icing Flowers like the Morning Glory, Poinsettia and the Easter Lilies. In the last class of the course we were taught how to assemble tiered cakes. We were allowed to bring cakes covered in Fondant or only buttercream (frosting). I did mine with frosting and used Royal Icing Flowers to decorate the cakes.

Easter Lilies made with Royal Icing

The lower cake was two 10 inch cakes and the top one was two 6 inch cakes. Don't ask me what I did with these cakes!!!! :D

The next course starts today, so more cakes to come!
