The cakes that have buttercream icing on them I used the wilton class recipe. There were several in our class that didn't like the "taste" of the class icing, so they made and used their own - well they had a really hard time getting the flowers to come out right. I was the only one in class that brought the correct icicng, and I seemed to have an easier time making them.
The cornelli lace and and coffee cup cakes are fondant.
Thank you for the nice comments on the cakes - I am really enjoying this hobby!
do you get to bring a cake to every class for course 2?
I think i will ice my cake with Dawns BC, which i think taste a whole lot better and then do wiltons BC stiff icing for the flowers... do you think that is a good idea??
