This week I finished up my class at Michael's. It was a hectic week so I was stressed out, but when I got to class I had a lot of fun. We learned how to make flowers, boarders, and leaves. I even learned how to make roses! My first one was really crappy but as I kept going I began to get the hang of it. I realized that I wasn't applying enough pressure to the bag. As the photo below shows, the edges kept cracking. I still need to figure out what I need to change to make sure the edges are smooth.
Our final project allowed us to combine everything we had learned to make a beautiful cake. I brought it to work since I had been caked-out and had eaten too much fudge. It was gone shortly after lunch.
I signed up for the third class that starts next month. I'll be using fondant!! I now have some stuff to ask for for Christmas. Speaking of Christmas, I can't believe it's less than a week away. I still have quite a bit to buy still.
