Roses all Around

This week was the time to tackle roses. Ha! This week was more like the week that we barely finished our cakes because we trashed the first fifty flowers. I figured roses would be hard, but not as hard as they actually were. Oh and the way they teach now....NOT easier. Well before I go on, here is the final picture of Wilton Level 1.

Ok, now I'm not sure what you think about the photo, the detail didn't come out all that well. But I learned something else this week; lack of AC is not conducive to beautiful roses. I did have some nice looking roses, but they sat too long off the cake and when I attempted to move them on to the cake they ended up looking like, well a deformed eye with many many layers. I'll attempt pictures throughout the classes in the future for further enjoyment.

So next week we have a break, but then comes the flowers, lots and lots of flowers! I'll be sure to post a bunch of pictures of the different types of flowers.

So until then, Happy Cooking!

Orders will be taken on a first come, first serve basis :) Haha!

  1. It's beautiful! Your roses don't look as made as you make them seem. Keep practicing - you'll get better every time! One word of experience (sounds like you've already figured this out though) - NC summer is heck for making roses - the humidity and heat are miserable! Keep having fun with it - I'm excited to see what you do in the next course!
