I finished the Wilton Cake Decorating Course 3 a few weeks ago! Course 3 is mainly about fondant and gum paste-- which is a neat skill to learn. I'm going to try my hand at homemade fondant in the next couple of weeks and see how that works. I really enjoy frosting with buttercream and royal icing but knowing how to work with fondant is pretty key as well.
I'm excited to use all these new skills! I already have a few cakes I'm planning in the next couple of weeks. Below, I've recapped the four courses. If you haven't taken a cake decorating class yet, definitely try it out! It's a lot of fun!
We made a bow and covered the cake in fondant... I think I failed the first attempt at covering... it's pretty pathetic.
Second & Third Week:
Flowers & Borders!
Inlays & Outlays
Football Mum (not my favorite)
Fourth Class & Final Cake!
And when you slice into it:
