Well, I am sad. I have no more classes to take to learn new techniques. Maybe I'll have to search around the web to see if Calgary has others at a different location.
My final class had lessons in Fondant and Gum Paste. There are some pretty intricate flowers that can be made using gum paste. It was definitely worth taking the course to expand my flower abilities.
The final project cake is done using fondant to cover the cake, a mix of fondant and gum paste for the ribbon border and the twisted garland, and all the flowers are made with gum paste.
As November approaches, I am almost nervous. I already have orders for five cakes, which is awesome but more than I've done before. I better get planning!!
