Blogging Marathon# 27: Week 4/ Day 7
Theme: Miscellaneous – Wilton Decorating Course 1 – Class 4
Dish – Eggless Chocolate Cake
It is the last day in April which means it is the last and final day of our Blogging Marathon# 27. Kudos to the entire group for successfully completing this challenge and thanks to Valli for being the best organizer as ever.
Coming back to my Wilton decorating course, for 4th class we had to bring a cake that was torted, leveled and frosted ready to decorate. Final class was dedicated to making roses and writing/ printing on the cake — all the final touches for a good looking cake.
As I mentioned in my previous post, I was the only student left in the class and I had the undivided attention of the instructor. I’m not sure if this was good or bad, since I felt like an unfocused 5 year old making these roses. There are about 10 things that need to be remembered while making the roses like right hand should be steady, hold the tip at a certain angle, rotate the flower nail in one direction and so on. I kept forgetting one instruction after the other much to my chagrin. Oh well, finally I got the hang of it, but my roses where nowhere as cute as the instructor’s. I need to practice a little more on my technique.
I made this Eggless Chocolate Cake from King Arthur flour site. This is a very easy to make recipe, just mix everything together in the baking pan, bake and serve right from the same pan. But since I was going to decorate the cake, I mixed the ingredients in another bowl and baked in greased baking pans.I doubled the recipe and made 2 cakes to make the 2 layers.
