    Planet cake 102

    So it was off to my 2nd planet cake course!! ( thanks mum:) )

    Luckily this one was on a Sunday so I didn't have to battle through peak hour to get there, and I could park right outside..gotta love that!

    After the standard "hi my name is.." it was off and running.

    Covering boards.. Cutting cakes.. Then the fun bit - ganaching. Bloody hell those corners are a bitch to work with for the first time, especially when short of time. (and especially when the person beside you looks like they were born baking cakes, and finishes every step way before anyone else...not good for the confidence levels)

    Then lunch, yum, and covering the cake in icing.

    Time for the cherries, with whatever colour we like. I went for disco gold, and my end of class report stated " best in class!" . Unfortunately however,  the same couldn't be said for my figurine..it sucked!!  and naturally my bench mate's was perfect:\
    So when i got home the dodgy figurine went straight in the bin and on went a cute little wooden doll i had been given for christmas (thanks Vivian).

    But after some practice piping cherries on my cake I was happy. A fondant ribbon finished everything off and it was time for the group photo!
    I definitely learnt heaps, and my teacher Jessica was great, and soooo patient.

    Time for 103 I think..
