Cake decorating! Actually wanted to enroll for the Better Baking Course since I am a beginner but the course is only on Sundays.... and it will clash with Easter. So, decided to try cake decorating first. Received a student kit and lesson plan at my first class. The student kit includes piping bags, decorating tips, couplers, spatula, practice board etc. Total of 8 students in the class inclusive of one guy!

Very informative and practical class by WMI : Vivian Tan (see pic above) - who has been with ICCA since its inception.

Watched her demo on how to prepare buttercream frosting and how to tort & frost a cake. Gasp! Homework! Have to bake an 8" cake, frost it and bring it to class next week! Stress levels are soaring high!

Good thing that ICCA stocks baking goods and ingredients in its store on the ground floor.... so I had no problems looking for the meringue powder, butter flavour, icing sugar etc to prepare buttercream frosting.

Piping technique shown on the practice board using Star Tip #18.

Practiced piping stars on Digestive cookies during the class.

At home, Evan & Marissa got to play with my piping bag filled with pink buttercream frosting. They decorated a few cookies and walloped some of them! Looking forward to the next class!
