New Guy's Last Class Cake

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
Hello again everyone. Last night was our last class for Course I. I think my cake turned out ok, but once again my icing was way too thin. I'll get better at making enough. Anyway, pictures are here... http://www.boydandtricia.com/cakes.html. Oh, and I've already signed up for Course II starting next week!

cake looks great. question did you like how you set the cake this time bottom on bottom and bottom is top of cake. I hope you did not mind when I suggest it that was one of the thing I was taught off right off the bat.

Keep up the good work, looking forward to seeing more cakes

That was great Leana. I think I knew better at the time, I just got ahead of myself and stacked the thing wrong. Hehe. Oh well. This time I stacked it right, but the icing was still too thin. I should have put another layer of icing on top of it.

I really enjoyed doing the roses and leaves. It's just amazing. You start to notice that if you shift positions this way or adjust pressure or any other small change, the rose turns out differently. It's like you can visualize what you want and then combine position and pressure and motion and everything to make it real. Just an awesome feeling...especially for someone not artistically inclined...like me.

I find the most pleasing thing right now to be getting the smoothest cake surface possible.
