Wilton Cake Class 1

I've been sick most of this week :(  Which hasn't been any fun.  But I did get a little fun and learned something new this week!

This January, a friend and I are taking the Wilton Cake Decorating Level 1 class at Michaels.  We had our first class on Wednesday night.
We learned some basics about baking a cake and learning to decorate it
  • You always want to decorate the bottom of a cake - nice flat non-crumbly surface
  • Don't overbeat your cakes - gives you too many air bubbles and makes your cake puff up in a minute.
We also learned about how to use the star tip to decorate. To use the star tip you hold your pastry bag at a ninety degee angle (up and down right above the item you are decorating).  Apply pressue to your bag to squeeze out some frosting.  Pause and then raise your tip.

Here's a few cookies we made :)  Up next week is actually decorating a cake!


  1. I took all 4 classes and the tiered cake workshop a year ago and loved every minute of it. You will learn so many techniques
