My First Cake

I am so excited and cannot wait to tell you that I have finally joined the Wilton cake decoration course I. Its been while since i was thinking of joining this course and finally i made it there. I have always been fond of decorating, doing embroidery etc basically crafts & arts. It has been my hobby ever since i was a child. Wilton Cake decoration classes have been so much fun, I am embarassed to say this but these classes (are some of few classes ) should never get over.
I am back from my second class and it was soooo good. We did our first cake today. We learnt the star fill-in technique. I made a cute looking Hello kitty and some lettering. My writing is not so good ( When you see the cake, you might recommend going to a calliphraphy class) but overall I was preetty happy with the result. The color used to fill-in Hello kitty is a little mis match, I was thinking of doing a simple balllon but than last minute I changed my mind Since my instructor Emy showed this Hello kitty picture.
I am so thrilled I cannot wait to share the pictures.



This is when I was back from class and cake was half Done.


This is my first cake.
