I used royal icing for all the flowers and color flow technique for the bird.
Of course I also used butter icing to makeup the cake and make basket weaves technique.
This cake is from my Fondant and Gum Paste Course.I choose Daisy as the Theme of my Fondant cake.
Personally,I find fondant and Gum Paste technique is much easier than the rest of the buttericing course I took.I learned intricate accents such as embroidery and lace, stringwork, garland and ruffle borders.You will discover the beauty of decorating with rolled fondant — for covering cakes with an immaculate smooth surface and shaping fun figures and elegant flowers.
This cake is from my Course 1 .Course 1 is the perfect place for me to start or appreciated the beauty of cake decoration . My Instructor show us the right way to decorate, step by step. I also share the fun with other students, who encourage me along the way. As I learn each new decorating skill, I will gain a sense of pride in mine accomplishments.
That why I took the following Wilton's course.The most important key to make beautiful and perfect cake decoration is to practise and practise!!.As they said practise make perfect!!.If you live in North America,I encourage you to take decoration class if you're interested in baking .I'm not advertising for Wilton's but personally I think Wilton's course is worth for you!.I guess maybe my instructor way of teaching is better than others instructor.Maybe?.You can look up at AC Moore,Michael's or Joanne for the classes offered!.To save $$$, I used the weekly coupon to buy the materials and tools!.Eventually I can use the tools ,pans and etc that I bought for my future baking,right?

This week I graduated from Wilton's Decoration Course 2.So far I took three of four Wilton's Decoration courses.I find the course is really useful,helpful and excitement for me.If I didn't attend all the courses I have no idea how to decorate my cake,,hold the pipping bag,make beautiful flower or differentiate between the icing.Let's me present you with all my final creations here!
This cake is from Course 2 lesson.In this course I learned how to master the elegant new borders featuring rosettes, reverse shells and rope designs. It's also give mine cakes incredible dimension with the addition of bold color flow decorations. My instructor teach us how to create lovely new flowers like rosebuds, daisies, daffodils, mums and more. I use these flowers in a grand finale to attached to an impressive flower basket cake using the interwoven basket weave technique.
