I took the Wilton one course and these are the cakes I made for every session.

this was the first one. It's vanilla with berry filling and vanilla buttercream. I was so rushed and pressed for time and I didn't even bring bowls for mixing the colors and it was all just a mess but it turned out alright... The colors were supposed to be red, yellow, green, and purple but that didn't quite happen Tongue The taste was delish tho!

this second one was my favorite in the way it looked. These were my first roses EVER and I was quite proud Tongue

the flavor was chocolate with orange buttercream. sooooooo good!

this picture CRACKS ME UP. my little cousins were visiting and I had them try the cake and the look on their faces just kills me. They look so sad and they're about to eat cake! Kids these days... so hard to please.

this was my final cake. i don't know how great i feel about the decorating but the taste was out of this world!

it was red velvet with cream cheese frosting aka heaven in my mouth.

lastly you can go to my post on this to see more pics and my thoughts on the class
thanks for looking!

Your cakes are gorgeous, and I can't wait to try out the chocolate with orange.  Nice job.

Mmmmmm, chocolate with orange icing, doesn't get better than that - and the roses are fantastic! The red velvet cake intrigues me too, might have to give it a go.
