Cake Decorating Class Final Project

Sunday was the last day of my Cake Decorating Course number one. I start course number two on Sunday and I can't wait. Even though I am a complete cupcake person, I have really enjoyed learning how to decorate cakes, since they better my cupcake decorating ability at the same time! Here are a few pics from my final class.

I am so excited about what I have learned! I start the new class on Sunday, and it looks promising!

Cake Decorating Class Project #2

Okay, it's over a week late, but here is my second project for my cake decorating class. I went a little off the beaten path and made pina colada cupcakes with toasted coconut cream cheese frosting. I did the flowers all by myself, sort of! I am really learning a lot in my class!

Cake Decorating Class Project #1

Today was the second day of my cake decorating class at Michael's. Since I am a lover of all things cupcake, I chose a cupcake shaped cake as my first assignment. I am having such a great time in the class, but it is turning out to be a lot of work!! I am learning so much! Next week we have an option of either making cupcakes or a round cake, obviously I am going to choose cupcakes! I think we are making clowns out of buttercream frosting....should be interesting. Here is a picture of how my first project turned out. Strawberry cake with buttercream frosting. Don't mind the dab of purple at the bottom...I was cleaning my pastry bag and dripped on my poor cake! I am so excited to return next week!

I got paid to make cupcakes!

Okay, okay, so it was my Mom that hired me to make them, but still! I made chocolate per her request. I went with dark chocolate cupcakes with a yummy chocolate buttercream frosting. They turned out great!
