Last night in class we learned about making, filling and decorating cupcakes. I chose to bake lemon cupcakes. I filled them with a lemon filling. I have never filled cupcakes before it was very easy and very fun. In class we practiced making different flowers like the shaggy mum and the pompom flower. Surprisingly, I found that decorating cupcakes is actually harder than a regular cake. I made four different colors with my icing, light blue, dark blue, purple, and green. The color combination looked pretty nice together.
Next week is the last week of this class session. I will be taking fondant and gum paste design next.
Here are a few pictures of the cupcakes I decorated. What do you think? Do you like lemon cake? Which one is your favorite? Also, check out the photos page for more pictures.
