The Final Class

Two Thursday's ago I had my final cake class. We learned how to make roses, sweet peas and leaves. Well, as it turns out, roses are kinda hard to make with frosting. My frosting was too hard at first, so I added some water, and then it was too soft. My roses turned out a little droopy. It was good to practice though. I got a couple of good ones. A few of them I dropped when I was moving them though. It made for a fun day!! This cake was really good. It was a yellow cake with white chocolate raspberry ganache. YUMMY!! I'm going to have to practice making roses. However, I don't think I'll be making too many rose cakes. They aren't my favorite. It's good to know how to do them though. I'm glad that I took this class. I learned some great stuff. Now I'm getting excited for my fondant and gum paste class in April!
