It first started with me taking a basic decorating class from wilton's .It is usually offered in local Micheal's stores .The amount of stuff like equipment , books, methods , different forms of sugar , food colors etc ,its such a big industry its unbelievable . I felt like a kid in a candy store .there was so much stuff that I had a tough time figuring out what I wanted to do .
So the first course teaches about what is icing ,what types of icing are available and what works and what does not . It teaches how to create basic flowers and decorate the cake using them.The best part was these flowers were made of royal icing which is very very long lasting provided they stored in air tight containers.Well I must admit that these flower do not taste as good as they look. They are extremely sweet for my pallet but on the other hand kids just munch them in a jiffy .
I must thank my husband for this , he always encourages me to take up classes that I like and enjoy .
The best part after decorating the cake was that I would not let anyone eat it , Friends would make fun saying that I would save it to be my son's (5 years old as of today ) mini wedding cake .
Though all this sounds and looks good its a lot of hard work to take classes and then decorate . I am full time working mother with 2 kids so to make time for stuff like this comes with lot of hard work. I would stay awake till 1 or 2 in the night making this .
But as they say the harder it is the sweeter sucess tastes in this case litreally
