Many of you out there have already obtained the right of passage into the decorating world by going through Wilton Classes.
I, however, am in the midst of my journey, so be kind.
May I say for the second time that fussing with turning these pictures has made me, a weee bit flustered. They are in the upright position in the file, but no, no, not here...where it counts...for you to see. Is this some kind of sign? Anyway you Wilton graduates know this template, don't you? Tinted piping gel over the print, turn over on top of "crusted" yeah, sure...cake, and brushed lightly to transfer picture on cake. It really was kinda cool. But I think if there is a next time, I will tint the jel with a matching color. And not fuss with my corners, so my cake will be DRY. But this was sorta fun!
Now THIS was fun! But just like getting this picture to post just right, I agonized over my cupcake "frosting" and after saying, "You know what? Mine doesn't have to look like the book." I got creative and made little round "thingies" And since I didn't have the confetti, I changed my tip and piped little dots on the cake. I stay two steps behind my teacher. Trying to listen and get my bags filled and may I just say that I am a little more "mature" than my classmates. Alright, I move a little slow at first...just trying to take it all in. I WILL get there, just not today :) And not only did Mom think it pretty, but so did her roommate...even though she also thought I could take her to the library. And the nurses and staff. So I felt pretty proud of my cake. And then....it was gone, only to live here on this blog....
Rosebuds. Can I just say I LOVE these little jewels. Now if my brain can only make my hands do all the right stuff! Yes, Wilton grads, yes, yes, I must practice, practice, play, practice and practice some more. Like you and one day......mine will look like yours...beautimous. And then I can make tiny ones and put on my cookies. ahah......! See I posted something about cookies. But seriously, I do want to use some of these techniques on cookies, too.
