Final Wilton Cake

Is that "Pomp and Circumstance" I hear? That's right - I graduated! Last night was our final Wilton 1 class, where we learned the famed Wilton Rose. And let me tell you, that thing is HARD! Not impossible, but hard. After making multiple cabbages instead of roses, the instructor finally told me I was turning the nail in the wrong direction. ::facepalm::


Next week I'll start Course 2 and learn how to do lots of different flowers. Can't wait! This cake is another Chinese 5-Spice cake, but it's filled with Cinnamon Roll pudding. Should be good, right? I'm sure Alex's coworkers will enjoy the sugar rush.



They still look slightly cabbage-esque, but I'm learning. This 7-rose bunch took me about 35 minutes.

don't feel bad. I did the same thing with my first roses. But in the end I learned how to make them. Actually, i kind of liked the frilly edged 'cabbage' roses. Cake looks great.
