Student Diary: Advanced Pastry Arts, Day 4

Homework for Day 4 was another piping assignment
Piping assignment 2

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!

You know if you loved us you would give us a little how-to on those marzipan flowers...you know...if you really loved us ;)

Well, I do have some marzipan left. I'll see if it's still good, and if it is, I'll see if I can provide some illustrated instructions. =) And I'd do it just for YOU!
