This is my first class ever for November, and I'm just doing the Decorating Basics for the first three months (there hasn't been an instructor at this location for a while). I have 5 in my class this month, but hope to continue to build the program. It's fun - I'm in Human Resources for my day job, so it's nice to actually be teaching a class where people want to hear what I have to say! When I'm talking about sexual harassment and controlling workers' comp costs . .. notsomuch. LOL
As for basketweave, it was rather tedious, though I've seen it on a few contemporary cakes, not many. It adds so much frosting to the cake - maybe an expert could avoid this, but I couldn't. It was too thick even for me and I'm a buttercream frosting fiend. ;)
I can also see why they combined all the fondant and gumpaste course material together. I think they only had it as a separate class before for the benefit of those who hadn't worked in fondant or only had one project like a wedding cake in fondant that they wanted to do.
I confess I've still been rather inactive with cakes AND posting here. It's getting to the point where if I don't do some serious decorating soon I fear I'll forget how! :O
Just need to take a leisurely day (what are those, I've forgotten) and play with some sugary stuff.
Hello from Wakefield, Kansas!! I started taking the Wilton classes in January of 2012 and have been enjoying cake decorating every since! I am also a member of Yummy Arts and other cake decorating sites.
