Cake decorating class #1

This post will be rather boring...NO PICTURES!

We didn't decorate last night, we just spent time learning how to bake cakes, what tools are helpful in creating the best cake, and learning tricks to make a level, smoothly frosted cake. We learned the recipe we'll be using for decorating this course (it's a butter creme). We saw the differences in the consistencies we can make. We also took a stroll down the cake decorating aisle at Hobby Lobby and I picked up a few items I think will be helpful. I picked up some clear butter, vanilla, and almond extracts. A large angled spatula. A cake leveler and some disposable decorator bags.

They were out of the 8 inch cake pan I wanted, as well as the decorator tip 789. I'll check back later for those.

Until next week (or maybe this weekend if I get ambitious enough to practice :)


  1. The disposable decorating bags will become your best coupons for these. Also you will probably want to buy a few extra couplers...otherwise you will be constantly switching them out and that gets annoying and messy. My favorite flavor of frosting is doing half almond and half vanilla! Yum!

  2. couplers and disposable bags are a must! you'll use soo many more bags then you think you will. I must have gone through two boxes atleast in Course I
