those roses took about 20 minutes total to make!
I just finished the four week Wilton cake decorating classes at Hobby Lobby! I "passed" (everyone passes as long as you do not miss a class haha) and I learned a lot of new techniques for decorating, icing, making borders and flowers. Cake decorating is definetly not easy! I went into the class never having made my own icing (I had always used store bought icing in a can) and now I learned that the only way to successfully ice a cake is with homemade buttercream icing. I am going to attempt to make Allie's birthday cake in a few weeks-it is a huge butterfly.
