Recently I finished my Level 2 Cake Decorating class. In this class, we covered royal icing, which I didn't like much. I missed the creamier (and tastier) buttercream. We did a bit with fondant and gum paste, and I really didn't like it either! I guess I'm just a simple person when it comes to cake making. I was happy with how my final cake turned out though.
I decided not to take levels 3 and 4 of cake decorating. They focus exclusively on fondant and gum paste, and that just isn't really my thing. For the most part, though, I've learned what I wanted to and hope to keep practicing my techniques regularly. After all, I was able to create these fun Valentines cupcakes for Pierce's school party last week:
