If I knew you were coming I'd a baked a cake...

I just started taking a cake decorating class through Michael's. Its the Wilton Method of cake decorating which I'm sure that isn't super fancy but its been a lot of fun. Our first class we talked about making icing and then also discussed how you ice a cake. So the picture quality isn't great but this is my first cake that I made for class. We learned how to do borders using the star tip and also writing on the cake. I didn't write on the cake but I did practice writing. I'm not super good at that yet. I'm really looking forward to the last 2 classes and then I think I'm going to try the other courses.

the stars look so perfect! Was there a template or did you freehand those?

AWESOME!

I used a cookie cutter. I just made the imprint after frosting and then piped on it.

Neat!! Great idea taking the class I know Violet's cake will be real cool for her first birthday! Love the colors and the decorations. That was smart using the cookie cutter to make a mold shape for the stars.
