Final Lesson - Fondant & Gum Paste

This was what I came up with to include all the elements of the course. I plan to attach the flowers that I made to it at some point and maybe let the store where I taught use it as a display cake. The current one doesn't promote the course correctly and misleads the customers into thinking three other flowers are being offered. We also made a fondant box.

This cake used up all the fondant that I used in the first lesson. I also added a few elements from the second class.

Final Lesson - Fondant & Gum Paste

My last class, with my students, was last Thursday. It went really well. My students have allowed me to share their creations with my readers. I was very impressed with how talented they truly are!

Stirling's 5th Birthday

Stirling all year had been begging me for a Scooby and Shaggy cake. I used a picture from his colouring book and did another buttercream transfer like Elmo. It looked awesome! I did, however, mean to have Shaggy line up with the right side of the cake, but I was distracted when I flipped it and well, once it's flipped you are committed. Ta-daa. (laughing to ones self) This left no room for any birthday greetings and only for the candles. I'm glad they were big and took up a good portion of the void. This was a chocolate cake with chocolate icing and chocolate pudding filling. Stirling really liked the pirate cake and asked for the same, minus fondant.
