Last night I did my finale cake for course 2. It was my first time with basketweaving, and I loved it!! It was so much fun and I can't wait for course 3 to start next week.
I'm new to decorating, and hadn't decorated a cake ever, until I started the courses last month. Any constructive critiques are welcome!
Thanks for looking!
I'm glad you are enjoying the classes.
Yours look awesome!! Much better than mine looked.
Your cake looks really nice, I enjoyed the Wilton classes too, wish I could take more.
Thanks guys! I really do love doing this...I'm so excited for the fondant work. I feel like after I start using fondant I can really just go wild and start doing cakes from my imagination.
Good job! I teach the Wilton courses, and I can say your cake is better than most C2 cakes I've seen!...and I've had some pretty good ones.
Your instructor did a great job teaching you!
You did a great job learning
You have a talent for cake decorating. Beautiful.
The colorflow birds are beautiful. The colors on the cake correlate amazingly. You could have maybe added a few more flowers. But that's all i can say.
Good job. My instructor couldn't really do daisies, so she skipped them in our class, yours look great. I agree that there's something really enjoyable about doing basketweave. Have fun at your fondant class!
Hard to believe this is only a "beginners" cake...you did a great job! Kudos to your instructor as well! I only found one thing that I would say you need to address! My eye went RIGHT to the starting/finish point of your top border...just above the bird...If you have a 'joining' problem just make that the back....or where the flowers cascade over it!
Another way to join them is to use just the tip of a knife to gently lift the start point over the finishing tail....hope I am explaining this right. That would give you a border that seems to have no start or finish.
Thanks bisbqueenb ! I noticed it also, immediatly after I finished it of course. I should have started and finished at the back of the cake like I did the basketweave but I wasn't thinking!
I love my instructor, she's so friendly and I really like her demonstrations, she makes it easy to learn.
I start course 3 tonight, so exciting!
That's a great cake!
You did really well on the basketweave too.
