Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this cake: This is a fruit cake covered with Royal Icing. I used the principles learned in the Contemporary English Piping class to do the decoration. The round structures were made from Pastilage, the yellow roses is made from royal icing as well as all the piping work done. What I realised is that this is a method to use when you have time to ensure you do not compromise the quality of your product. I required a lot of skill and practise. When doing this piping work it is very important to follow with a damp paint brush to correct the imperfections on the cake. If you are ready for a real challenge with cakes this is the place to start.

Thank you very much. I love the piping. I've learned a few tricks to keep the hand sturdy in the meantime. Thanks for a wonderful class. Much appreciated.

Hi I experience the same problem from time to time with diferent classes. I think it has something to do with our local network speed and computer setup. You hope you get it right. Its a nice course
