Cake Classes

19 Oct

It’s been ages. I’ve been very busy with work and weekend classes. Managed to insert cake classes in between for the past few months. Trying to have a decorating crash course cause the genius me had hastily volunteered to bake my cousin’s wedding cake this December. I know right! What was I thinking! I had volunteered to pay for it but my aunt and cousin insisted on me baking it instead. I’m okay with birthday cakes but wedding cake is a big deal! So many what-ifs in my head now. (What if the cake break apart, what if the buttercream/fondant melt, what if everything fall apart, etc.)

Fate introduced me to Kak Aidah from SweetnessSg and Kak Bella from byBellaCupcakes. So thankful to meet them!

SweetnessSg: Had previously went to their Pavlova and Meringue Workshop. Recently went for the Swiss Meringue Buttercream class. Really love the decorating parts but of course I’m just a beginner. Kak Aidah taught various ‘design’. So many options to choose from but I love love ruffles! Will need to practice like crazy! My hands were too shaky to pipe any decorations. Super nervous for nothing!

My Frozen inspired cake. hehe!


With ombre surprise (cause it’s pink inside!) inside:


byBellaCupcakes: I went to a total of 3 classes! Such a pity she’s leaving in November especially since I only know about her in late September.  Had super crash course in October. So worth it! I actually feel sad she’s leaving! Heh.

First class was sequins. I think I should have gone to basic class first. Had jumped straight to sequins. hehe but she kindly guided me throughout. I love fantasy flowers! So pretty on a cake.


Second class was on fondant. Making it from scratch. This should have been my first class though. My ribbons still look a bit awkward. But we were rushing to complete it due to time constraint on my part. FondantTheir class was on two tiers! She also included anemone and roses. I can make more flowers now! So many ideas for my cousin’s wedding cake! Now if only I can sketch out the ideas.. hehe. My sketches sucks.

2 tiers

I love all the classes. They are tiring because of the long hours (4-6hours) but so worthwhile. So sayang to cut after the long hours spent to make it but.. no choice right.

Now I just need to put in whatever I learned into the wedding cake. So worried!
