Okay everyone, here it is! First I got showed around the bakery section, where they place things and such. I got taught how to take orders. And then I started decorating. They just had me do quarter sheet cakes for the case and I could decorate them however I wanted. They did not let me do any ordered cakes though with the kits. My manager does not care how many cakes you ice in the time given as long as you do it as fast as you can. Also, roses are VERY hard to make with the buttercream they use, toooooooo soft. On the otherhand the whipped icing was awsome to work with! I then helped place labels on bakery items like bread, muffins, and donuts. Overall it was a great experience and I am really looking forward to tomorrow! Also, the frosting is too soft for roses but too stiff for actually icing. The first cake I made was not something I was proud of...The frosting was too stiff and it was really hard to smooth. But, my manager showed me a trick which made the other cakes a breeze. One thing that surprized me though was that they did not have any angled spatulas to ice, so I used a plastic scraper instead because I cant ice with the straight spatulas. And, the cake icer is your best friend! it makes things so much easier. Also, costumers like cakes with ballons and sprinkles instead of roses and such. I first I was getting a little discouraged because my cakes were not selling but they did.
