Today was the first day of class. A local Austin cake shop, All in One Bake Shop http://www.allinonebakeshop.com, offers all three levels of Wilton cake decorating classes. I learned how to make frosting (no low-fat version), proper way to frost a cake with no crumbs, and a few borders and flowers. In only 3 hours I made a decent looking cake. Hope next week goes this well too.
