I decided to sign up with her because I've wanted to try my hand at it for a while. And Lee signed up too...mostly because I asked him. He claims it's because he "like[s] to do stuff with [his] wife." He's so diplomatic, isn't he?
For the last 3 weeks, we've gone to our class at Michael's, armed with frosted cakes or cupcakes, a ton of buttercream frosting (it really is a TON!) in an assortment of colors, frosting tips and bags, spatulas, towels, and an apron.
Mom K and I decorate our cakes using the techniques we've learned in class...
On the other hand, Lee's decorations are themed...
Isn't that the prettiest hammer-and-sickle cake you've ever seen?? And can anyone guess what the picture is on the cupcake located middle row, second from the right?
Needless to say, we're having an enjoyable and amusing time in this class!
Note: For all the guys out there who are worried about Lee taking a cake-decorating class, I've agreed to take a "manly" class with him soon, like auto body repair, advanced camouflage painting, or concealed weapons permit class. Don't worry--why would you be worried about someone who decorates his cakes with hammers, sickles, and silhouettes of Lenin?!?
