Recently, I decided to teach "Tall Cakes" at my store. This is a 3 hours project class offered by Wilton for us to teach if we like. Since I am just getting back into the swing of things with my classes, I was looking for something more to offer them outside of the three courses.
Tall Cakes came out back in September of last year, just when I was leaving for the birth of my second child. I was so looking forward to teaching this when I returned, so it was a no brainer for me to offer it the first chance I could. The course itself teaches students the basics of stacking cakes, and the different ways you can make a tiered cake. So because I have to demonstrate in the class, I have to make a tiered cake myself.
I wanted something simple, so it didn't cost a lot of money to decorate, and something elegant enough to look like a great wedding cake. So my choice was to make a simple black and white style cake. Overall, I was impressed with my results!

It went over pretty good. In fact my store manager is going to keep it for future displays in the store:)
