Cake Decorating Class

Today I wrapped up the Wilton Course 2 Flowers Class. I'm so happy to know how to make those beautiful roses.
I made a ton of them out of Royal Icing. Not my favorite. I prefer the buttercream icing.

I was thrilled to learn how to make the Basket Weave pattern!
The next class is learning about fondant. I can hardly wait to take that one too!
I think I've perfected my cream cheese frosting. Lemme tell you it is fabulous!
It will make a ton of icing, enough to heavily frost a layered cake and decorate all pretty.
It takes 2 packages of cream cheese, 1 cup of butter ( I prefer Fleishmans Olive Oil Butter) 2 pounds powedered sugar and a splash of vanilla extract. Blend till smooth. Add a bit more powdered sugar to make stiffer if making flowers or other decorations. Seriuosly crazy good!!!
