This class was supposed to be solely focused on making flowers using royal icing, but we ran out of time in my last class and had to squeeze in fondant roses as well. I LOVED the fondant roses! It was so nice to be able to shape them and mold them exactly how I wanted versus being at the mercy of buttercream and the flower nail. I think it’s official – I’m totally smitten with fondant!
After having some fun with the roses I moved on to making lilies, poinsettias, and petunias with royal icing. I have a feeling that my icing was a bit too stiff because I wasn’t getting nice points at the end, so I will need to experiment with my icing consistencies a bit. Some of them also didn’t fare so well on the car ride home 😉
Next week is my final class for this course – I will be making a 2-tier wedding-style cake covered in fondant and roses. I can’t wait!
