I have always wanted to take a cake decorating class. I see all these amazing cakes on Cake Boss, Ace of Cakes, and Pinterest and I am envious of their talent. Now, I don't plan on going profession with any newly learned decorating skills, but it would be nice to make some nice gifts or cakes for my children's birthdays.
I am taking the Wilton Basics class from our local Joann's store. Yesterday was my first class. I convinced my friend Jen to take the class with me. We both have little ones and don't get out just to ourselves very often. It is nice to just spend time with each other without little ones running around. Jen has some experience decorating cakes, but she wanted to learn all the ins and outs. I will have to convince her to send me some pictures of her cakes and a mini tutorial as they are amazing!
Let me share with you some of my first attempts at decorating and a great video tutorial on putting together clean icing bags.
