I love cake!

Every Thursday for the month of January me and my two friends Kirsten and Lisa are taking a Wilton cake decorating class at the BYU Campus Craft and Floral. We are in the first course. Our first class was on the 7th. It was just an introductory class where we learned the basic things we needed to know to fill a cake and frost it. Well on the 14th was our second class where we had to bring a cake pre-frosted and then we got to decorate it. We learned how to do write, do stars, do the base of a rose, and do pattern transfers. What that means is that you can take any picture or pattern and transfer that image to the cake. After we learned all of this, we got to decorate our own cakes. By the end of the class we didn't have a lot of time to decorate so I took my cake home and finished it. I must say that for my first cake I am pretty happy with it. It didn't even take as long as I thought it would. Once I was done with it, I made Eric wait until the next day to eat it so that I could take the cake to work to let my co-workers see it. He's a patient guy. I'm excited for the next two classes and then for the fondant and gum paste class I'm taking in April. My kids are going to have great cakes! Anyways, here are the pictures:
