Here's my first cake class cake! I made it tonight at my cake decorating class. It was really fun! The instructor taught us how to use the grass tip and also taught us a couple of different ways to do borders. Coleman let me use 3 of his toy trucks and he was so thrilled when I brought this home! I also found out what the local bakeries use to make whipped cream frosting. It's this stuff called Pastry Pride Non-Dairy Ready to Whip Topping. It is so divine. So light and not too sweet. A perfect alternative to buttercream. I think I will be using this on most of my cakes. Will really thinks that I should start taking pictures of all the cakes I do and make a portfolio and start selling cakes. I have done quite a few and I really do enjoy it but I think I will have to do many more cakes before I'd feel comfortable asking for money for them. Anyway, I told the instructor what I really want to learn to do sometime during the course is how to stack cakes. I think some of the best birthday cakes I've seen have been tall, stacked cakes using fondant to make it all super smooth and gum paste cut-outs to jazz it up. I'd love to eventually be making cakes like this guy!
