After a little hiatus for our vacation, I am back in the Wilton saddle! You may have noticed that I have gone from Course I to Course III – I missed Course II while on vacation, and I wanted to learn fondant before doing a wedding shower cake for one of my sister’s best friends at the end of June. I will pick up Course II in July before moving on to the final course – Gum Paste and Fondant.
I am the only person in my class this time around, and it was really nice to have one-on-one instruction with my teacher, I love it! This first class was mostly learning some additional border and decorative techniques using buttercream icing. I learned the bead border, cornelli, garland, and ruffle borders. I also got to start playing with fondant, how fun! I made some buds for what will become fondant roses in my next class. Here’s a sneak peek:
