My First Cake Decorating Class...

Last night I had my first cake decorating class. It's a Wilton class from Michaels.

Well, it was the very first lesson from the first class; so honestly, I knew most of what was gone over.... how to bake a cake, how to make frosting, how to put the frosting in the pastry bags, etc. However, I did learn a couple new tricks. If you put meringue powder in the frosting, wait fifteen minutes after you frost the cake; you can use parchment paper to make it as smooth as fondant. Also, my mind was blown with this little gadget:
A little rubber band with a thing-a-ma-gig so you can just pop it on and off...

Silly I know, but so very nice! I've never had a problem with my frosting blowing out the top of the pastry bag, but this will make things a little easier.

Here are a few pictures of the "decorating" I did last night. It was more of making a mess that I'll have to clean up...
"J" for Justin, "B" for Baby, and "M" for Megan!

I'm looking forward to the future classes so I learn how to make flowers, and things like that. More posts to come!
