Everything I have learned about cake making up to this point has been self taught, and I learn A LOT from lots of mistakes. I still have so much that I would like to learn. Orson Gygi offers some amazing classes, and they have a fondant class that I took. I am SO happy I did, I learned many new techniques from it. In the three day class we made our own cake. I plan on taking more classes as they come up.
So this cake has been my most challenging one so far. She wanted it clean, simple, and with columns. Which I have never worked with before. Also she wanted her figurine in the center to light up. But! Even with all the bumps in the road it came out exactly how she wanted it, and in the end, all that matters is that the bride is happy! Although I did kinda feel like Duff from ace of cakes with my electrical work :)
