Since I have just started the Wilton 1 class, I haven't learned how to make flowers yet so I just used some leftovers from my daughter's bday party hat project. We made hats and the girls got to decorate, but I digress. I'm new to this so go easy on me. Will say this was one of the better cakes I've eaten and family commented about that too. Extracts and puddings work wonders! I hope I can recreate something similar when I learn to make flowers.
