Cake Decorating

At the beginning of March, I was asked to teach the 10 and 11 year old achievement day girls in our ward cake decorating on April 20. I looked at the schedule and it seemed like a great day to do it. Then the week before we found out that Brian was flying to Florida for work for 3 days that same time. It made it stressful prepping since I spent the few days prior to the class baking cakes and making marshmallow fondant and had been planning on Brian being around to help out. It was a lot of work but it all worked out great and was so much fun. I think the girls loved it.

There were 10 girls, 3 leaders, 4 kids under the age of 4 (luckily not mine - a sweet neighbor watched mine for me) here during the class. I'm sure it was the most people ever in this kitchen, but it actually didn't feel too cramped.

Each girl decorated a 6 inch cake. These are the sample cakes I made to give them some ideas, but they were so full of ideas they probably didn't even need the samples. I still had fun doing it though. It reminded me how much I enjoy cake decorating. I definitely need to do it more often.

When Kaidrei got home as we were cleaning up she starting picking balls of fondant off of the pink and black cake (above). Then after I made it impossible for her to reach the cake, she realized there were balls of fondant all over the tables. At which point, she quickly snatched a ball of fondant and ran off - to thoroughly enjoy it until Mama intervened...after getting a picture of course!
