This post has nothing to do with knitting, except for why I haven't been doing it as much lately. My DD and I signed up for a 4-week Wilton cake decorating class, and here are our (ahem) masterpieces. Before you diss my chunky icing, keep in mind that I didn't use Crisco, but substitued palm oil and butter. They're better for your body, but not as smooth as the chemically altered stuff. I also used organic flour and sugar, so the only thing artificial in our cakes is the food coloring. If it weren't required class material, I'd just settle for different shades of chocolate.
All the cakes pictured are long gone. Next week, we'll learn how to make roses.
