I have great desire to become an excellent decorator. I'm fairly new to caking (wilton 1 class was in July) and have progressed decently. However, I now find cakes I would have thought were FABULOUS 3 months ago are dissapointing. This is primarily because I desire perfectly straight sides, sharp corners, and flawless fondant. Am I expecting too much of myself? I don't expect myself to be perfect but am disenheartened that every step I take up the ladder, I realize there are ten million more I didn't see before. I did only take Wilton 1 then took Wilton fondant and gumpaste...but found them only to be fair. The instructors were ok...not great. I watched Sugarshack's dvds and was overwhelmed because I primarily disagree with fashion over flavor. I hate, HATE shortening based icing. Is there anyway to have both a generously iced cake, beautiful fondant and AMAZING flavor? Sorry for the rant. By the way, I'd love some pointers on how I could improve. So if you wanna look at my profile and give me tips, I'd be grateful. Thanks a million!!!
