So true…

I have baked several cookies to cakes , never had this satisfaction while serving the food this way.

Yes, You guessed right , I am talking about cake decoration class I took.

This is my latest muse, which quenches my thirst of baking as well as my thirst to express art in food.

I was a novice baker who applied store bought frosting on warm cake and was wondering what mistake I did .. 😀

The greatest decoration I had ever done was to glaze some cinnamon rolls .

I knew I needed help and heard about Wilton classes from my dear friend Vahini. I signed up the very week, gathered the supplies and was like a kid who awaits to open her presents on her birthday.

The classes, I would say , was really informative. Lucky would be you if you get an instructor who does not push you to buy Wilton products .

I did buy the student kit, a 13 inch angled spatula and a cake lifter. For a turn table, I went for Ikea’s lady suzan . It is really a bang for your buck.

I googled a lot and here are my few favourite links to learn a few extra tricks.
