Not long after, a Wilton Methods course opened up near me and I signed up right away. I've taken three classes now, which are just sampler classes but I will be signing up for the complete courses later on.
It has been a lot of fun! I didn't realize how easy it is to decorate a cake when you have the right tools.
The first week, we learned some of the basics and decorated cupcakes. Towards the end, I was just using up frosting, so that's why some of them look a little messy!
The second week, we decorated cookies. It was an animal print theme.
The third class was my favorite so far. We made Picnic Pals cupcakes. I think they turned out so cute!
I decided to use Father's Day as an excuse to practice a little bit. I made hubby Hawkeye cupcakes.
He loved them!
I also made a few pink cupcakes.
So much fun! Now I just need another occasion to bake cake for! Since I am trying to lead a healthier lifestyle, it's not like I can just make any excuse to bake!
It has been so much fun going out of my comfort zone, learning new things, and meeting people.
Have you ever taken a cake decorating class?
