I finished up the Wilton Cake Decorating Court 2 on Monday night! This time we didn't bring a cake each week, instead we had a final cake complete with flowers we worked on each week! We learned the basket weave, which I might add was a lot easier than it looks! We then placed our flowers (made from royal icing the last 2 weeks) onto the cake! This made me very nervous...I like to copy and trace things, not always good with creative ideas on the spot! However, once I got started it just flowed from there!
I am very pleased at how it turned out! I would have never believed 8 weeks ago that I could make a cake that looks this good! In fact, I won't let Matt cut into it b/c it's just too pretty! Maybe we will eat it in a couple of days!
This my my favorite picture of the cake!
