Friday night, my friend Kate and I headed into the city, to CAE in Flinders Lane to attend 'Cupcakes Galore' - a cupcake decorating course. We had bought a couple of vouchers from one of those websites (you know the ones? - Scoopon, Living Social, Daily Deals, etc) at around 60% off of the regular price - bargain!
The course was all about technique, more than anything, and after 2 hours of theory, we got to play on our own 6 cupcakes.
Here are the 5 techniques I played with :
This one the teacher called 'The Proposal Cupcake' but it really was just using chocolate ganache instead of buttercream and adding red roses...(oh, and all the flowers used were premade..but I will learn how to do them one day too! The leaves are by me though :-P)
"The Softserve" - this is my favourite, as I think it would look fantastic on mass, and it's just so cupcake-y..
And she also demonstrated "The Rose" which was just beautiful but I didn't get a chance to try that one, although Kate did and it looked amazing, even with the icing being a bit too warm and droopy.
So, that was my Friday night.
How was your weekend?
