Its a very nice cake. You should be proud of your self.
The airbubbles can come if you mixing in high speed for a long time. In that way you get an airy and fluffy bc.
I would use down speed to get no bubbles.

Anyway it does not show on th pc. Great work.

Ok, I found it.. with the blue-lavendar rose bouquet, right? Umm. that's what we had to do for our Course I finale cake in my Wilton Classes. Course II was an oval cake with royal icing flowers and basketweave sides and colorflow birds or butterflies. Did you mean to say Course I or is this from your Course II?? I'm just confused and curious now.

Blessings,

Our course II was the basketweave too. Maybe different sections of the country are doing different cakes for the courses? I really like the color of your roses!

I loved it. You learn a lot of flowers in II. I have enjoyed all of the classes, and learned a lot from them. My final cake for Course II is in my sig. I am taking the last class of Course III tomorrow night - drawing out what I want to do, our instructor lets us have free-reign as to what cakes we want to do. I am a little nervous - never done a tier/stacked cake before. (I have a lady who is buying it sight unseen too!)

WOW QUAD! THAT CAME OUT GREAT! IS IT HARD TO REMEMBER HOW OT MAKE ALL THE DIFERENT FLOWERS?

ARE YOU USING WILTON BC ON YOUR CAKES?

All of the flowers are in the booklet that you get to keep. (which is really nice) I think the hardest thing for me to get was the consistency of the icings - make sure you take extra powdered sugar with you to class incase you need to stiffen it up.

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??
I am really enjoying this hobby too
I just got an order for a communion cake for may 14... im really excited, but not sure what to do.. lol..
