Wilton Course III, Class 4

My final cake, a 2-tier wedding-style cake. This cake consists of 10-inch and 6-inch cakes, covered in fondant with fondant roses and leaves, and buttercream borders. I actually completed this cake on my own at home because I came down with a little bug and couldn’t make it to my final class. I am pretty proud of completing this with only the instruction of the book and not a teacher!

These roses were definitely time-intensive, as it probably took about 5-6 hours total to construct the 38 roses that went on this cake. Other than that, it was a pretty typical decorating job. I am having a great time doing cake decorating and will move on to the Wilton Fondant & Gum Paste class in July.

More pictures after the break (I went a little crazy with the camera)…

  3. Wow – can I put in an advance order for one whenever I get around to getting married?😉

  4. that is so cool! I cant wait to do the fondant class! We dont have the gum paste class in NZ. Last night was my night 3 of the royal icing class. We made heaps of cool flowers which I cant wait to practice in the weekend. The royal icing roses seem to be harder than the buttercream ones, so looking forward to learning to do the fondant ones!
