Wilton Course 1, Class 2
Since I missed the 1st Wilton class due to my vacation, the 2nd class was technically my first, but we decorated a cake in this one which I was really excited about!
I've been wanting to take the Wilton classes for ages now, but could never find the time/people to go with! So me and 2 other "nesties" got together and are taking the class!
The first class was so much fun but I am SO excited to learn the more difficult techniques. I have a lot of practice to do (ie. writing...I stink at it!!!) but I'm really looking forward to practicing more and more.
Everyone in the class did an Easter themed cake, but I asked my instructor if she had any birthday related patterns since I was bringing the cake into work and had two birthdays early this week! So I did balloons!
I used my favorite Hershey's Perfectly Chocolate Cake recipe, but used the "special dark" cocoa powder for something different. I filled it with strawberry mousse, which was a great addition.
All in all I was very happy with the 1st class and am SO excited to continue on with the rest of the Wilton cake decorating classes!
