Wilton Method of Cake Decorating Course 1, Day 4

Last session for our Wilton Course 1 is all about buttercream roses. Since it’s our last day we were also asked to bring our final cake which we get to do final design in the class. I had a hard time getting the roses done the Wilton way, it took me more or less 10 tries to get an acceptable rose. For the class I bought 2 kinds of buttercream – store bought and homemade, the obvious difference between them is the store bought ones have smooth petal edges while the other is not.   On to a my final cake, I bought a 4 layer 8″ cake in it’s final iced stage to school. I initially planned to make buttercream flowers a week before class but was not able to even make one. I piped leaves as top cake border and placed the roses I made during class, ran out of time to make more flowers to make it look like a bouquet cake. Anyway, I’m still happy how my cake turned out.

Getting ready for school with Centrepoint

This school year we have two students in our household which only means twice the chaos every morning. I am still having a hard time accepting the fact that our LittleMiss will no longer be my constant shadow. She still has 6 more days with me before nursery school starts and I have been giving in to most of her requests. LittleMiss is beyond excited for nursery school to start, she has been playing teacher and mommy to her toys. “Baby, you will go to play school and mommy will wait for you outside.” “Mama when I go to play school you be a big girl and not cry, ok?” To not cry. That I cannot promise. I was still holding back tears when Kuya V left for his first day of 3rd grade. The day came when it was time to go back to school shopping.
