Another cake – get used to cakes

Posted in Uncategorized on December 2, 2012 by hoagiefest 2020

It’s a cake from over a month ago. This cake was my “final project” for my Wilton level 1 cake decorating class. I had other projects, but I forgot to take pictures. We learned how to do these roses in the last class, so really my final project was just tossing all my practice roses on a cake. The cake was a single 9″ cake (this recipe, without the lemon zest/lemon extract, and with vanilla extract), leveled, and then torted into two layers. The icing is the not-v.-good all-shortening buttercream from a recipe in the training manual. My icing consistency may have been a little too dry, because the roses and shells weren’t very smooth.

We planned on taking this into work, but then a hurricane came through (maybe you remember it? I don’t know, maybe you don’t) and work was canceled for a while. Anyway, my wife and I ate this whole damn cake. HAPPY HALLOWEEN!
