Let’s Play Cake! - September 2011

Last Wednesday I announced “Let’s Play Cake!”  If you missed the post you can catch up on it in this post.

September’s Theme:  Practice!

While preparing to make displays for the store I was reminded that we sometimes get so wrapped up in learning or doing new things that we forget about the basics or forget to take a moment and brush up on something we have already learned.

I challenge you this month to pick at least two techniques from any of the three Wilton Courses and practice them. 

You can bake a cake to decorate with the different techniques, or you can just pull out your practice board and do it on there.  If you want to practice some of the flowers you can always just do them on the wax paper squares and save them for a future use.

Post pictures on facebook in the album titled, “LPC” – Sept 11!  Or Email any pictures to me at TracyCakesTX at gmail dot com.  Please include a description of what you did.

All pictures received by the last day of September will be shared in a blog post the first week of October.

I ask that anything you submit to me or to the photo album be a new creation.  While we all love a chance to show off past work the idea behind this is to push us to sit down and do something new or just for ourselves.

Next Post:  Friday, September 2nd - Write on your Cakes!
