Preliminary Round - Obtained!

Two months back, I started with the cake decoration course in BITC. For twice a week, eight weeks, rain or shine, happy or sad, energetic or tired, I went to the class. The class was 6.30pm to 10pm on Thursdays and Fridays. Going to the classes meant forgoning baking cakes during those evenings. It's an opportunity forgone.

On 18 Jun, it was the last day of the course. For good or for bad, the seven of us made it through. It was a fun bunch of friends to have and know. For the past three lessons, it was just preparation for the sugar plaque, to be presented as our final project work for this course.


I had to bring back some of the royal icing works to do. It seemed that I did very little preparation and planning. :( Got a bit panicky in class while I was assembling my decorations. I was the last to finish my sugar plaque as most of them knew what to do, while I didn't. :( It was a relief to have completed the plaque. Ideas were given to us earlier on how and what to do.



A coursemate, Margaret, made a Raspberry Mousse cake as a graduation celebration for us. She feeds us with her bakes quite often. So far, she has made fruit tarts, brownie, chocolate cheesecake, butter cake and lavender lemon cookies. They're like from bakeries!



This is the wonderful class of Cake Decoration from BITC.


The certificate may be an achievement to some, may be meaningless to others. However, to me, it's just the beginning of the journey to more decorations, practices and endless creativity! I'll be moving on to the Wedding Cake Decoration course. That is why, this is only a preliminary round, it's a pre-requisite to Wedding Cake Decoration.

I love the red more...but the yellow one seemed to fit the cake better.... Stunning!
Now I know who I can ask for help when I want to make the fondant!

Hi Angie,
Actually I also love the red more. I added gold lustre dust on it somemore! Unfortunately, it was "sunken" here and there, doesn't look embossed! So I decided to use back the yellow instead.
Oh, this wasn't using fondant, it was using royal icing! Cool rite? :P

Hi HHB,
Thanks a lot! Not really, my status hasn't change, still a full time working mother, and a part time baker! ;)

Hi SSB,
Thanks! Yes, my coursemates put in a lot of effort on the decor and the design too! Mine was more simple, simply becos I don't know what else to put! Hahaha... Oh yes, I'll share what is being taught, then you can decide if you want to attend later? :p

Hi Anna,
Thanks! It's just too simple. I would like to "clutter" it too! Heehee...
