Decorating Course…. Part 8

This is the last of my posts about the decorating course for atleast 2 months, when I get a chance to make up the missed classes with the next batch! Luckily, I had attended this session before falling sick! It was quite an easy session, with roses and sugar bells!

We started off with making the buds out of gumpaste, and leaving them to dry for a while. Making the buds was actually quite easy! They then showed us how to make the petals, and how to place them on the bud. I was not too pleased with the end results, because I’ve seen way better roses online [see tonedna on YT], but maybe that’s because of the primitive tools we use!! A spoon?? Come on!!! It’s shocking :P :P

Anyway, here’s what it was supposed to look -

Versus how it looked. I had problems with tearing, I couldn’t bring myself to use the damn spoon properly!

I’m very busy with college presentations at the moment, but I plan on practicing and perfecting these flowers after that [maybe 2 weeks], and maybe then I can get over the fact that we use a spoon to make a rose!!!!

One very interesting thing we learnt in this session was how to make baked sugar bells. I don’t have any pictures, since all our curious hands broke it, but it’s really quite easy! We just filled a mould with castor sugar, and then baked it in the oven. I plan on using this technique using a lot of other moulds too!! :)

I hope to continue this session of posts soon! Till then, you can always read up on the older ones -
