Week 9: The Final Cake
This week, I took all the skills and technique I have learned so far to make my final cake!
I did not know how much time decorating cakes really take, especially when learning from scratch. I did struggle a lot with my learning project as it took a lot of time to decorate a cake. As i had to bake the cake, make the icing, do the crumb coating and wait for that to set and then finally decorate the cake. With being a busy student with school and other activities, I felt like I had no time to do this as well write a blog post afterwards about what i learned. I was just too tried to do this all in a day or a few day, so it took me a bit to actually post my learning project blogs. But after I complete decorating a cake, I was proud of myself well most of the time. After decorating cakes for a bit, I still don’t think they look the best as i still struggle on the crumb coat. As I don’t understand how the videos I watch can make the icing that goes over the crumb coat looks so good and smooth. I was never able to achieve that look. But overall I am proud of myself when I look at the first cake I decorated to the last one, as there is a big differences on how they look.
