Baking 212 Day 8

Wednesday, January 13

I learned several things today. Class was all about different techniques used to decorate wedding cakes. We used an 8 inch cake to practice buttercream decor, and a 6 inch cake to practice fondant decor.

For buttercream, we learned the basketweave and swiss dots.

For the fondant decor we learned lattice, pearls, and swags.

Then, we had to learn to stack tiers, so even though the fondant and buttercream don't match, we had to stack the 6 inch on the 8 inch.

Tomorrow through Wednesday we are learning to make gum paste flowers...all day...everyday. oh joy.
