A few weeks ago, a friend of mine from church asked me if I'd give her middle daughter a lesson in cake piping, since she's developing a bit of a passion for baking! Now, I'm not going to lie, I have very limited skills in the area of teaching (which is why I appreciate my kids teachers so much!!) but I adore all of her girls, so how could I refuse?? It took a bit of time, but we finally found a morning that worked for both of our schedules. Sarah Kate came over today, and in between Halloween orders, we worked on some technique. We started with mixing colors, prepping and filling the piping bag, and then started talking about which different tips can make different designs, depending on the angle and pressure you use on the bag.
She was a QUICK learner!! Check out two of her cupcake designs (which she did ALL by herself, I might add)... we had so much fun!
A festive pumpkin patch - lots of technique to practice here - grass, round fat pumpkins, leaves, and vines! Perfect for this time of year!
And a super cute buttercream spiderweb with a fondant spider... can you see his shifty little eyes.... yup, she painted those on!! Adorable!
