Cakes

Last night I finished course 1 of the Wilton Cake Decorating class. The last 4 weeks have been fun, but a little tiring as well. I'm glad I took the class, but it will be a while before I take another one for obvious reasons. Right now I'm content with what I have learned and I think I have enough knowledge to make Thomas a great birthday cake in August.

Here is last week's cake:

Yes, I made the clowns (except of the heads) and one of the clowns is pregnant! They were actually very easy to make and I hope in the future to find some other type of "heads" instead of clowns (they can be kind of creepy!).

Here is this week's cake:

I made the roses before class and they turned out okay. I definitely need more practice. The bow isn't great, but she didn't give us a lot of practice before telling us to put it on the cake. I was really hoping to write "Happy Mother's Day" on it, but there wasn't enough room after the bouquet of flowers were added.
After Josiah is born and we get into the routine of having a newborn again, I'll definitely have fun playing with my new skills. And by the way, Josiah is due one month from today - I am more than ready!!
