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. I have an Eggless Chocolate Cake for the final day.
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.
