Cupcake Wars: Wilton Cupcake Decorating Class

My Aunt Pam and I have been talking about taking a cake decorating class for over a year now. We have been trying to teach ourselves and have done ok considering we have no idea what we are doing haha.  However, we really need to learn the basic skills.  

Yesterday, we finally took a one day Wilton cupcake decorating class at a Michaels near us. We learned the basics on how to properly use bags and tips as well as other products. 

For instance- did you know that there is cupcake food color spray-paint- Miss Pam and I had to buy that. I swear I almost went and bought the entire two aisles of decorating products. 

It was a two hour class, but it went quickly. You can't be afraid of getting messy- we were both covered in icing and laughing when our flowers looks more like a giant monster blob. My favorite one I made was using a giant star tip and making a professional-looking swirl on top. A classic cupcake decoration that you can find in most bakeries! 

We are now signed up for a beginner cake decorating class for all of July and I have to admit I'm pretty excited. 

Maybe we're not quite ready for Cupcake Wars, (I think the battle of the frosting is just beginning), 
but we're at least making a start! 

I swear the cupcakes looked a lot better- they just got smashed a couple times due to travel!

Bon App├ętit!
Chef Maggie
