“Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.”
– Mahatma Gandhi
The final class of my Wilton Course -3 was fast approaching and aside from the uber sized excitement that accompanied, there was also the dilemma as to what I should create. Keep it simple with plain white fondant or go for a fancy coloured one, pastel blues flowers or pastel pinks. After nights of racking my brains, I decided to make pastel blue & lavender roses, mums & carnations with light sap green leaves and pastel beads on the side, all sitting pretty on a 6″ chocolate cake covered with white fondant.
I want to take this opportunity to express how much I admire Wilton Cake Decorating Courses. Although I’ve baked cakes, decorating them was always a challenge. The course begins with what materials to use, how to fill piping bags, how to ice cakes and then the various decorating ideas, starting from buttercream to royal icing & finally fondant & gumpaste. The ideas are plenty no doubt but apart from that, the courses are so well organised & that makes it really easy for anyone who is new to caking. Of course, having a talented teacher like Kendra, who is truly the epitome of patience, helps a lot!
I hope you like this creation of mine! I’m eager to hear what you think about this cake.:)
