For the month of July, fellow Edmonton blogger, Lindsey (from Hot Polka Dot -- yummiest blog ever!) and I took the Wilton's Decorating Basics class at Michaels!
My favourite techniques have got to be the stars, drop flowers, rosettes, dots (these are way trickier than they look), writing (what to write is an entirely different problem), leaves (these are way easier than they look), and just simple basic things like icing and filling cakes and cupcakes and those weird little tricks you never think of but are completely genius the moment you hear about them.
Everything was pretty delicious, too. Do you remember gollum from Lord of the Rings? Well, it took every ounce of my strength to keep from grabbing everything, crouching in a corner of our house, and licking buttercream off cakes while whispering, "my precious."
