Welp, I finally broke down and took a cake class. The class was at Blue Cake Company, and was so fun. I had never been there but walking in was really neat. There were only 3 of us in the class, and it was taught by the owner, Jan Lewandowski who was the nicest person I've ever met. Here's the description that got me pumped up about a month ago
Tiered Present Cake Class: Each student will fill, frost and fondant a 4" and 8" square tier and decorate with a present theme. We will demonstrate a variety of bows and tags to personalize the gifts. We will cover fondant covering and coloring, bow making, dowelling and traveling with tiered cakes. We will also cover figure modeling and make a figure for our cake. This is a two day class and will be Tuesday November 16 (filling cakes and making decorations) and Wednesday November 17 (fondanting and decorating cakes).
(sidenote: is fondanting a word? Okay, back to blog)
Last night was the first night of it, and although we didn't stick to the schedule exactly, I had a TON of fun. We ended up making decorations for our present cakes. AKA: bows and ELFIE (new best friend).
