Cake Decorating - The Finale

You know it has been a long time since you uploaded photos into blogger when it takes you three times to get the photos in the order that you want! {This post was going to be up two days ago!}

We have finally finished Course 2 - Wilton Cake Decorating. All I can say is YEE HAW! I have never been so tired of cake or frosting in my life!

Pondering what I want our final cake to look like. I look like I am seriously concentrating!
Trying {key word: trying} to perfect my rosebuds. Please don't ask me to make one for you because you will be highly disappointed.
Working on the basket weave for the cake. I thought this was something that was going to take a lot of time and very hard to do.
Pleasantly I was surprised at how easy it was. I will definately use this technique again.

This is what our final cake looked like. {When I say "we" and "our" I mean my mother and I.}
I think it turned out really well. We ended up using our "ugly" flowers on this cake, since we knew that we needed to make a cake for my mother's RPAC auction that was coming up.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

This is the cake that we made earlier this week for the RPAC auction. We had our cake decorating instructor help us out on it {we wanted to raise a lot of money with it}. I think it turned out really beautifully.

Don't ask how much money this cake made. I was both disappointed and upset!

Well, that does it. You guys are officially cake decorating professionals!!! Quite honestly, I don't think I've seen a prettier cake in years! And boo/hiss to the person who didn't cough up a cool $1,000 at least for the auction cake. Good grief.
