Cake Decorating Class 2: Week 3

I think it every week, but class was so much fun tonight. First we started by learning a border I suddenly can't remember the name of. :p If you do it right, it is supposed to look like a pearl necklace. It was so simple and so cute! I asked Randi why we learned the shell border in the first class because this one was so much easier than it. She said that most cakes are decorated with a shell border so that is the first one she teaches. I don't think anymore of my cakes will be decorated with a shell border. 

Then we learned how to basket weave. I've always wanted to know how to do that! I need some more practice, but I really enjoyed it. I can't wait to try it on a cake. We also learned the rope border which I think is so pretty. Its a great way to top off a basket weave cake because it pulls in the whole basket theme. My bag was almost out of frosting so my rope border didn't turn out how I would have liked and I was to anxious to learn more flowers to refill my bag. The second rope border picture was the one Randi did to show us how to do it.

The flowers we learned tonight were daisies and pansies. They were both so much fun. By the end of class I think I was finally getting the hang of it. I love that pansies have more color, but its also more work because you have to keep switching bags.

I think it was called a bead border. Your flowers turned out really well. I miss looking at yours sometimes because I sit over by Kim!
