Sunday's Cake Class

On Sunday I went to a cake decorating class, at the teacher's house. It was great. the class was for a "Sleeping Santa" cake. We had to take a 7" iced cake on a board, and the cutouts of the head board and bed side table in with us. I decided to make mud cake, as I'm not a huge fan of fruit cake.
Once we got there, she showed us how to put the bed side table together, then we painted it, and stuck it and the head board onto the cake board. Then we were shown how to make Santa. From then on it was free time, we could do what ever we wanted with the cake, and if we needed any advice or help she was there.
I decided to make Santa sleep like a starfish, just like my husband.

The completed cake

Bedside table

Toy sack & bear

The only thing not edible was the curling ribbon. I am so happy with the finished cake. I ended up using 2kg of RTR icing, and 1/2 a kilo of modelling paste.

I already have 1 order!

That cake is wonderful! Was that a Wilton class you took? Or just a fondant class? You rock!

Thanks for the comments... You will make my head go big, lol.
Cakeflower: We don't have Wilton classes over here :( This was just run by a local lady.

Hi Kat, could you contact me regarding the possible use of a photo of your sleeping Santa cake for a food website in the UK. I'll get back to you with more information. Thanks, Josh (heavyblue20 AT hotmail DOT com)
