I Decorated a Cake!


Hello Everyone,
Good Morning it's TGIF.  Last night I took my second cake decorating class.  Of course you know I love Cupcakes!!!
This is my first attempt at decorating a cake with decorating TIPS.  I love them.
The class is offered at Michaels Craft Store and we are using the Wilton Lesson Plan.
 'Decorating Basics'


The icing is a class Butter cream Icing.


I transferred the cupcake pattern to the cake top using piping gel. Then I used a tip 12 and yellow icing for the cupcake.




Using a tip 3 and yellow icing to pipe curving lines on the baking cup.  I used tip 12 and white icing to pipe swirls on the cupcake top. Using a tip 12 and pink icing to pipe the decoration on the top of the cupcake. The bead bottom I  used tip 12 and white icing. 
The directions recommend confetti sprinkles to top of cupcake and sides of cake, but I used up the remaining frosting. ~ THRIFTY ME~ 









I'm so happy I finally took this class.  The decorating tools are so important and to have a someone personally show me the decorating techniques is awesome.  I am a very visual person.  As you can see by the way I blog.

Life is good today...
