My Final Masterpiece!

It was my last night at college on Wednesday and we were asked to bring in a fruit cake and our finished flowers, that we had to arrange into a spray. Brenda showed us how to cover the cake with marzipan and sugar paste. She then went on to show us how to attach our flowers on the cake and a few other decorating ideas. I then covered my cake with marzipan and sugar paste, then put a ribbon around the cake and placed my flowers non top, using a small piece of sugar paste to secure them. Using a crimmper tool, I crimmped around the cake board, which I had covered with sugar paste, then I cimmped the top and around the sides. I used a rose embosser around the sides and dusted each rose to add a touch of colour.
I am really pleased with my cake, Brenda was really impressed and she thought my flowers were lovely! I am donating my cake to a friend, Emsie, her mum is having a coffee morning in December for charity, so I thought she could raffle it off. I am glad it is going to a good cause and someone else can enjoy it.
I am going to carry on and do the intermediate cake decorating course, it will take place at Brenda's shop but not till next year. I am looking forward to it, as I have really enjoyed this course and have learnt a great deal.
