Wilton Course III Lesson 2: First Gift Box Cake

I had a headache and was feeling too tired to go to class tonight, but I did the lesson myself at home. I figured since this was a lesson I thought I could do on my own, I might as well give myself a break. I didn’t want to drive all the way out there (5 miles away, lol), sit in an overcrowded class (storage room), not really get much help (because the class is over crowded), and work in a space where I don’t have room to move (especially since I’d be rolling out fondant with a rolling pin).

I texted my instructor and let her know I wouldn’t make it tonight, but that I’d see her tomorrow for Course II at the other location (where it’s in a nice bright classroom that isn’t overcrowded and has lots of space to spread out and work).

I made a Tiffany box cake. I still need to make the rosebuds that we’ll use in either the next or final class to make roses. I’m sure I’ll have time this weekend.

Here’s my first attempt at a gift box cake. I can already think of things I’ll do differently next time to make it better and easier, but I’m happy with the way it turned out.
