Course 3 Final Cake

I finished course 3 of my cake decorating class on Monday night!  I was originally going to stop there but I found out my teacher is going to teach course 4 - gumpaste and fondant in September!  I decided to go ahead and do course 4 (the final wilton course).  Go big or go home right?  I am curious and excited to find out more about gumpaste!  Don't ask me what it is yet!  I've also been working on my business cards for my very small cake business!  Hopefully I will post a sample soon!  
You don't even want to know how long it took me to make these roses!!!
I love the small white flowers!

I love this view of the top!

Hilarious Cake Wreck!!!

This cake just cracks me up!!!  I found it on Cake Wrecks Blog!  
Three guesses to what these people wanted on their cake!  hahahahaha

Course 3 Cake

It's been a while since my last post.  It's been pretty busy around here!  I am in the middle of course 3 in my wilton cake decorating class!  This was the cake I did for class on Monday!  It's a white cake covered in fondant (a cream confection used as a coating for cakes to give a smooth appearance).  The bow, ribbon and spirals are all made of rolled fondant!  I am really liking fondant!  It's like play-doh!  And it makes the cakes look beautiful however, it tastes really bad!  I've heard home-made fondant tastes much better than store bought.  

Matt and I have been thoroughly enjoying the Olympics this week!  We especially like swimming (I'm convinced Michael Phelps is a fish), and gymnastics!  Matt can't wait for Track and Field to start this weekend!  Not one of my favorite events!  We decided to add to our list of things to do is go to the Olympics!  How amazing would that be?  Definitely would have to be the summer Olympics.  Hopefully one day we will make it!
