I am officially a graduate of Wilton Course 2! I haven’t posted any updates on Course 2 yet because we were basically just working on making all the flowers to put on this final cake. In the course we learned how to use Royal Icing to make flowers that will dry hard and you can make them ahead and then place them on the cake. We also learned how to use Color Flow Icing to make little birds, but unfortunately my birds got cracked in the transportation process so you won’t be seeing those on my cake.
The flowers you see on this cake are daisies, petunias, pansies, daffodils, and victorian roses. This is only about two thirds of the flowers we learned to make in course 2 but I decided to omit some of them from the cake to keep it from being too much.
Please excuse the terrible handwriting on the cake. It was a last-minute and hurried addition. Alex had been complaining that I hadn’t made any cakes in Course 2 so I decided to dedicate the cake to him. 🙂
In the next picture you can see a close-up of the basket weave design and the rope border (top of cake) that we learned in this last class.
All in all, this class was a lot of fun. At times it got a bit tedious making all the different flowers but I am very happy with the final cake. I have already signed up for Course 3 in which we are introduced to fondant! I will be sure to post updates on that was well.
By the way, the cake was just a strawberry boxed cake mix with strawberry jam filling.
