From Crumbs to Cake

“I know and I feel that I can do this.” (First week of March 2017)

That was during our first Wilton Cake Decoration Class. Before the class started, I browsed Pinterest just so I could picture out the cake I’m planning to achieve. Talk about self-motivation. πŸ˜‚

My cake inspiration.

So, during our second meeting in the class, I made this epic fail cake. Nobody ate it. πŸ˜‚ Fail, because I got the wrong consistency of the icing. It was too thin to frost a cake. Yikes. πŸ˜₯

First cake in Wilton Cake Decorating class. Epic fail.

For our final class, my work somehow progressed. Thanks to the flowers. Yey!

Ain’t that bad compared to theprevious one. =)

Then when our course was done I made a cake from scratch at home. Just to practice what I’ve learned. πŸ™‚

Got some macarons from Bakemate, Jeddah.

I found a pack of whipped cream and used that to add some borders.

My white chocolate did not melt very well. I just added some of the whipped cream I found to thin it out.

I’m slowly getting things right. I think? Haha

It was supposed to be a gift for a friend. I didn’t like the result. I did not bring it to her birthday party. 😊

Should have brought the cake instead. She didn’t have a cake during her party.

This was my first paid cake. Imagine that. Someone trusted me to bake a cake. haha A friend ordered. I gave her a discount for trusting me. Haha πŸ˜‚

It has been a year and I’ve practiced and have been on a weekly, monthly practice. Is the course worth it? Yeah, I believe so. It was a good investment. I was able to bake and decorate my kids’ birthday cakes, I’ve had orders here and there. If you are looking for something new to learn or enhance your decorating skills, you may want to try the course. =)

    1. This part is for personal. If for business, I suggest one to take all the four courses. (Buttercream, gum paste, fondant, advanced)

  1. Oh Girl, this is so good! I love how you’ve progressed. Do you have to attend classes at the venue or is it all online?

    1. It should be at the venue. It’s on the second floor of Cake Arts in Quraish street. There is a Wilton instructor who will be giving the classes. =)

  2. It is good to attend class if you really want to improve your skills. Actually, the first photo looks nice naman, kakainin ko pa rin yan. hehehe! Checking all the photos, you really improved a lot, ang gaganda ng cakes mo.. Dati, yung cupcake hindi mo binigay, pati pala cake, sayang effort mo.

    1. Yes. I did it with the cake din. Yung sa cake, yung decoration yung reason bakit hindi ko binigay. Pero kinain naman namin dito sa bahay. πŸ˜‚ πŸ˜›

  3. Wow, ikaw yan? Ang galing! I like baking but I’m not sure I can do the “pretty” part. I want to learn how to make icing, though, and have been thinking of googling it.

    Congratulations on your beautiful cakes. I can see the progress from where you started to now.

    1. Yeah, that’s me. Thanks. πŸ™‚There’s also Wilton Philippines. They offer the same classes there. πŸ™‚ I search ideas on Pinterest and Youtube din. πŸ™‚

  4. Wow! every cake looks yummy! Even your 1st cake. And yes you did pretty well with your decorations. Maybe someday I’ll order. πŸ™‚ Good luck on your cake bakeshop business.

  5. I’ve always wanted to take baking classes πŸ™‚ I really love baking, but cakes, well the decorating part actually, is my weakest link. Will have to make time for this and attend cake baking classes πŸ™‚
