Today was the fourth and final day in my little girl's cake decorating class. I can not believe what a wonderful job she did decorating it. We have enjoyed the class so much! The group of girls/women in it are wonderful. I don't have the talent so I sit and watch. Today I told them I guess I am like a "Soccer Mom" or "Stage Mom" but with cakes, so I guess I am a "Cake Mom". I try not to hover over her, I have no clue how to do the things she has accomplished and I am so proud. She honestly decorated all her cakes by herself. Scroll way down to see more cakes and you will see the progress she made!
She is only 11!!
This is her final cake!!
Let me take you through the steps:
Bake the cake
Begin to ice it
Continue icing but with fine coat. Then pat with a Viva Paper Towel
Next bring the cake into class and learn the basic weave technique. They learned the technique today on a practice board and iced the cake today after learning the technique JUSTtoday! She had fun with it and did a super job! Her teacher Deb helped her finish up the back because her poor tiny wrists hurt so badly.
She made the Royal Icing flowers last week to put on her cake.
The week before the class made Birds out of Color Flow but we were out of town. Amber, the most darling girl, gave us two birdies. Here is my little girl's final cake!
Here is her teacher, Ms.Debbie, giving my little girl her diploma for graduating course two. She is now ready to move on to the third course which involves a two tiered cake! I am so proud of her efforts. We love Deb. She is the best teacher. I made her this little booklet this morning, as a thank you. It has a big cake on it.
Here are the members of her class:
Her classmates, Jennifer and Amber. Jennifer is an Art teacher and Amber a darling 15 year old. We have enjoyed them through both Levels One and Two classes. Jennifer, the Art Teacher, actually made hers look like a basket!! Amber's blue cake was so precious. Her bright flowers were just so adorable. She is just a doll!
Here is another girl in the class, Jessica, Jessica made a gorgeous purple cake. She planned to add some My Little Ponies to the top as a special treat for a little girl she babysits for. She is so talented!! The purple basketweave was gorgeous!
Anna and her Granddaughter, Emma did not make the class today.
I miss Evelyn, she had to switch her class to another time.
Now they are all ready to move on! Me? I can't even prepare an icing bag!!
I would LOVE if you would leave her a comment! You don't have to have a blog to do so. Just click on the little button below where it has a number and says COMMENTS.
