It has been a crazy busy week. I'm beginning to wonder if life will slow down from here on out! I do have a two week break before I start my third Wilton Cake Decorating Course.
Monday was my last class of my second course. This last session I learned how to do the basket weave pattern and I decorated my cake with all my finished flowers. I made way too many flowers, but at least I got the practice and I had many to choose from.
If you have ever wanted to learn how to decorate cakes. I highly suggest taking the Wilton classes or find a local bakery that offers classes.
Below is my final cake. The first picture is from the top and the second picture shows the flowers cascading down the side.
I thought I did a pretty good job for my first time doing basket weave. I feel sorry for the lady who made my wedding cake. I had four cakes that each had the basket weave. It is very time consuming but it sure has a beautiful effect.
