I'm glad I'm not the only one with a horrible Cinderella cake. Darn that stupid character pan!!!
OMG I love that bra cake!!! What a cute idea!
I spent $80 preparing for the first class and I had tons of stuff already at home (bags, tips, colors etc). After that is was around $30 for the 2nd and 3rd classes to buy tips, practice boards, book and supplies to make cakes and icing. But it’s all stuff you need anyways so it’s not a waste of money.
Oooo that sounds great I say go for it! You'll get to see how a real bakery runs and learn tons about cake decorating and whatnot. Good luck and be sure to take pictures of the cakes you make if you can!
I think it depends on what you mean by bakery. If you’re talking about the bakery in a Wal-Mart or some other chain place I’d skip it. I would kill for a cake decorating position in a “real” bakery though. My SIL, MIL and good friend all work in the bakeries of Price Cutters, Wal-Mart and Summer Fresh. It sucks, the hours are long, the mangers don’t appreciate their staff, the pay is nothing and I’m constantly listening to them complain about how much they hate their...
I guess I’ll be the lone voice of dissent lol. I wouldn’t have known what the FBCT was if you hadn’t written it in your OP. I’m sorry, I’m not trying to be mean but I don’t see a soldier or a helicopter. Maybe it’s your picture though. Is it all black? I think that’s why I’m having a hard time seeing anything. If you have time to redo it I’d use some other lighter colors to help show the details, like outline is a light grey and fill in with black and dark grey? ...
Yes cake decorating and completely turned me off to cake. I stay away from sweets in general though. I work out to hard every week to stay in shape as it is. My dh and my MIL on the other hand LOVE my cakes. Which is why they have about 35 extra lbs on them lol. I’ve refused to make them anymore cakes until they loose the weight though lol.
I made an 8x10 of Tux the Linux penguin for a grooms cake (in my pics). I just made sure I put on a nice thick layer of buttercream on the back when I was done so there wouldn’t be any chance of it breaking when I peeled the paper off. I also left it in the freezer for a bout a week before I used it to make sure it was totally frozen solid. It turned out great.
I used wooden dowels in my own wedding cake. I was completely mortified when we started eating it and anyplace a dowel had touched the cake it tasted like you were chewing on a Popsicle stick. The flavor of wood was so strong you couldn’t even taste cake, just wood. I had only doweled it the day before so I was shocked they did that. I haven’t used a wooden dowel since and I never will.
I took all three courses plus a bonus wedding cake and catering class. It was all well worth the time and money. You learn so much more than just what is in the book. We didn’t even use the books for the 2nd and 3rd classes. We used the older class books that they don’t make anymore. They have more stuff in them. I would NEVER try to teach myself how to make those flowers you learn in class 2 on my own. I had a hard enough time learning them in class with an...
