Student Diary: Advanced Pastry Arts, Day 4
And then we spent the rest of the class decorating our wedding cakes
Class sketch: I used my homework sketch--a square wedding cake--and adapted it for my actual cake
Another homework assignment was three marzipan roses and six leaves
Cake!: I made more and added them to my cake design because I didn't feel like piping roses, and I love the luck of marzipan and fondant roses
Side (front) view: The buttercream was melting in my piping back, thanks to my warm hands and the warm kitchen, so my stringwork was pretty darn bloppy; I decided to just run with it (before it ran off the cake). Overall, I'm pretty happy with it! And so was my Hun and co-workers who got to mow into it later--positive reviews all around!
My classmates rock talent!
Jesse and his cake in the walk-in
Teammate Lori's cake
Teammate Rachel's cake (she and I are both Wilton-certified--woot!)
Sonny's (I think) cake
Marcus' amazing cake (we don't call him The Overachiever for nuthin'--he's a total natural in pastry!)
