Wilton Cake Decorating Class (Course 3)

2 Comments

This month, I took the Wilton cake decorating class course 3. Since Course 2 wasn’t available, I decided to go with the 3rd course which was fondant and gumpaste. I learned a lot of things during these 4 weeks like how to make fondant and gumpaste bows, flowers, and how to cover a cake with fondant. The flowers that I learned to make included mums, calla lilies, daisies, roses, and carnations. I specifically liked making the roses even though they were the hardest. For my final cake, I decided to go with an elegant and girly cake design.

I will be taking Wilton’s course 2 starting next week.

First Class:

In the first class, we made rose bases, carnation bases, mum bases, and  a fondant bow. I also added a little bit of white pearl dust to make the bow sparkle.

Second Class:

In the second class, we used our rose bases and made roses. We also made carnations and calla lilies. They all looked so real!

Fourth Class:

In the 4th class, I made my final cake. We learned how to make different types of borders using fondant and how to cover a cake with fondant. I made my own marshmallow fondant and used it to cover my cake. My cake was a 2 layer 6 inch vanilla cake with vanilla buttercream between the layers.

I had a lot of fun during this course and I loved working with the fondant and gumpaste. It felt just like Playdoh!

  1. Your cake is beautiful. You did very well. My 16 year old daughter wanted to take the class, the instructor would only let her if I was with her. We finished the first course and tomorrow we start the second course. Here, they won’t let us take any of the courses unless we have taken the one before it. Keep up the great work.
