It's official. I finished Course 1 of the Wilton Cake Decorating at Michaels. I even got a Certificate of Merit to prove it. Don't laugh, I may just frame it and hang it next to my Budweiser Honorary Beermaster certificate.
I'm really looking forward to Course 2 beginning in March.
There is a little story behind this cake.
It all begin with my searching for a cake pan in the shape of a four-leaf clover for St. Patrick's Day. Unable to locate one in any local stores I decided I would just make the cake I'd envisaged, all by myself. Having taken 3 cake decorating classes went to my head a little apparently and I thought I could just do this. Obviously my cake cutting skills are not up to par yet, so my four-leaf clover very quickly became a mouse based on Marisol's favorite dancing mouse Angelina Ballerina.
