This is my final cake from Lesson 4 in Course 4, currently the final course in the Wilton Cake Decorating Classes! Seeing everything come together is so satisfying!
I wanted to incorporate all of the flowers that I made during the course onto my cake and I did use all of the flowers but one, the Daisy, which can be seen on my Lesson 1 post, along with these pink flower blossoms. In lesson 4 we dry painted all of our flowers! I really enjoyed the painting, it was so relaxing and enjoyable seeing the flower come to life!
In lesson 2 we made these Briar Roses along with the Ivy Leaves that are on the cake, again painting them all in this lesson.
In Lesson 3, I made the two yellow Sweet Peas and the white Stephanotis Bud that you can see to the right peaking out behind the Sweet Pea. In this lesson, I painted the Sweet Peas with a goldenrod color.
The Stephanotis Flower, which is the white start shaped flower above, was also made in Lesson 3 and the painting added in lesson 4.
The majority of the final 3 hour class was spent on this gorgeous Stargazer Lily. The class is normally 2 hours, but we all decided to start the final class an hour early. We started Stargazer Lily in lesson 2 making the leaves and making the petals in lesson 3. In this class, we painted each of the petals and leaves by hand and then put the flower together with floral tape, taping each petal and leaf one by one.
The flower arrangement is inserted into the cake using a flower spike and wrapping and taping all of the flowers together with floral tape. During this final class it was raining and I had to disassemble it to bring it home and then reassemble it. These flowers will keep forever as long as they are safely stored in an airtight container. They are also super fragile!
My favorite flower that I learned in this class by far is the gorgeous Stargazer Lily, the star of the show! I am very pleased with my final project!
