I have always enjoyed making and decorating cakes. I was never really all that good at it. I would usually just bake the cake and slab some store bought icing out of a container on it. Was it edible? Yes. Did it look great? Not so much.
So in April I signed up for a Wilton cake decorating class at Michael's and I am so glad that I did. I took a 4 week course and learned so much! I had never made my own icing before nor had I ever used a decorating bag and the tips to apply the icing. I learned how and now I am never going back! Seriously, why would I?
My cakes looked like this before:
And now they are looking like this:
Still not the best looking cakes in the world, but definitely a vast improvement. Best of all I really enjoy doing it.
If you love making cakes and think you have room for improvement I highly recommend taking these Wilton classes at Michael's. They are fairly inexpensive and well worth it!
