Wilton Decorating Basics #1

I started my first Wilton decorating lesson at BIY and it’s a whole lot of fun! Cake decorating is like doing art and craft (one of my fave subjects in school). The lesson was conducted in a very structured and interesting way – ideal for decorating beginners like myself.

I’m awed by some of the “life changing” baker’s tools introduced in the lesson –
Cake leveler – No more worrying about slicing an uneven cake.
Cake icer tip – 3 times faster vs. icing a cake with the good old spatula.
Coupler – Zero mess when you change the piping tips!

Starry Starry Afternoon – we practiced piping stars many times in lesson 1.

We also learnt how to make a good, thick buttercream that we will use as the decorating medium throughout the course.  I bought all the necessary ingredients and an electric mixer to make a kickass buttercream (our homework this week) for lesson 2 next week. 🙂

P.S. I got interested in cake decorating after my weak attempt for Twice’s first anniversary cake – That was done in the icing room. I’m sure Twice will have a better decorated cake next year!
