Wilton Decorating Class (Course 4)

Leave a comment

Last weekend, I took my last Wilton cake decorating class (advance gumpaste flowers). In this class, we made bouquets with the flowers. They included Gerbera daisies, Briar rose, Sweet peas, Ivy leaves, lily leaves, Stephanotis flower, blossoms, and Stargazer lilies. Out of all the flowers, I thought Gerbera daisy was the easiest and Stargazer Lily the prettiest. Some of these flowers were quite hard to make and were very fragile as you can see in the pictures. But they still came out nice and I will definitely use these flowers on cakes that I make.

Week 1:

In week one we made pink blossoms and orange Gerbera daisies that were quite easy. The flowers were made of mostly gumpaste and a little bit of fondant to color the gumpaste. Unfortunately, part of my Gerbera daisy broke and I did not have enough time to make another one.

Week 2:

In this lesson, we learned how to make Ivy and Lily leaves. For flowers, we learned how to make beautiful Briar roses that we later dusted with color dust in week 3. We also made the Stargazer Lily petals

Week 3:

Week 3 was fun because we got to dust our Briar roses, Ivy leaves, Lily leaves, and blossoms with color dust in addition to making Sweet Peas, and Stephanotis flowers. We used lime green, spruce green, goldenrod, and deep pink colors to dust the flowers. The color dust really enhanced the flowers beautifully.


Week 4:

This day was really exciting because it was the last day of the last course! In this lesson, we dusted our Sweet Peas and our Stephanotis flowers. We also assembled and dusted the Stargazers and they were by far one of the most prettiest flowers I learned how to make. Towards the end of the class, we made bouquets of flowers and leaves. Part of my Stephanotis flower’s petal chipped off, so I could not add it to any of my bouquets. I also got my certificate for the last course! 🙂
