Baskets, birds and beautiful flowers

After the excitement of course 1, my friend and I couldn't wait to get started on Wilton course 2.  It's all about royal icing in this course and you learn how to pipe royal icing flowers, which dry hard and can be stored for later use.  Very exciting and here is the final cake after 4 lessons.  It was soooo pretty I couldn't bare to eat it!

Oh baby!

I did this cake for my neighbour, Geeta, who wanted to surprise her relative who was having a baby shower.  I used the Wilton baby bottle pan to make the cake, followed the instructions on it and the cake came out easily.  Then I followed the shape of the cake with icing.  It took absolutely ages to ice as I was very nervous about getting it neat and nice.  But well worth the effort and patience I think.  My neighbour was very pleased with it, as was her relative :)
