Another cake class has come to the end. I'm always a little sad when that happens because they are so much fun. Tonight we worked on our final project. I was a little stressed over mine, but it turned out beautiful. One Monday I decided to bake my cake so I could do the main layer of frosting on Tuesday. So Monday night I poured the cake box mix into a bowl and added my eggs. When I turned towards the sink to add the water, the bowl bumped the counter and spilled on my floor. I was then out of eggs. :( So instead I made my cake on Tuesday night and then got up a little early on Wednesday to do the frosting. A while back I bought a horse shoe cake pan, but hadn't used it yet, so even though the inside curve intimated me, I decided to try it out anyways.
I really wanted to do the basket weave, but the inner curve made me change my mind. I'm glad I did because just doing the bead border was hard. Then on the top I did the rope border. I think its my new favorite border. All we had to do for our final project was do a flower arrangement. I was only going to do mine at the bottom and up one side, but it was so much fun so I did both sides of the show and then some of the edges also.
For my cake batter, I used my all time favorite cake recipe, Yogurt Cake and then I did Lemon Buttercream Frosting. I can't wait to try my cake, but I want Josh to see it first so I guess I'll have to wait until tomorrow night.
I already miss cake class, but our Fondant class will be next month so I don't have to wait long. Until then we also started a book club to keep us busy with excuses to get together.
