Cake Decorating Classes

I've been really busy this month. I took up some cake decorating classes. I took Cake Decorating Course 1 where I learned all the basic techniques of frosting, piping and making flowers and figure piping with butter cream. The next course I took is the Fondant and Gum Paste Lesson. For this course I learned to make flowers, cover the cakes, making ribbons and borders. Here are some of the cakes we made on our last lesson yesterday.





Can anyone guess which cake is mine? My next 2 courses will start in March and as for time being I am laying off cakes for a while ;)

Gert, You must teach me how you guys did the carnations. You know what? All the cakes and flowers I created, all pakai hantam je tau. No special proper techniques whatsoever.
