So you can see why I got inspired to expand my knowledge of bath and body and test the waters where I have zero skill: Confections. It is one of my goals this year to try new things where my comfort level is seriously compromised and be willing to fail when I do attempt a new thing. Like cake decorating. I have no more experience with decorating a cake past the can of chocolate frosting you buy in the supermarket and a butter knife. Maybe some sprinkles and candles.
So I am out of my comfort zone with this class, 'tis true, but only because I have never done it and I am a bit clutzy with fine detail. This is an understatement, folks.
My class started last week, but we only talked and there was a quick demo in making the icing and . Tonight, my class meets and I am supposed to bring in a cake, already baked and iced with the stiff buttercream frosting I am to make. Hmm. I know I should have practiced this week, but with work, company and other family related events, I could not get to the cake thing before today.
