WELL. This post is all about a basic cake deco class I joined some weeks back. The talented artist behind Cuppy Puppy Bakehouse is Chef Joanna Penaloza Romero, and I was encouraged by a friend to take her class because she is the only one who teaches the method of covering a cake with ganache and producing sharp edges in one's cakes.
Chef Joanna at far right, my classmates and I and the results of the workshop :)
Guess what? I wasn't able to take enough photos! For a new baker like me, everything was twice as hard and I was working extra slow. Ganaching a cake is serious business. Instead, let me share with you what my finished decorated cake looked like and know that this cake was so hard to make!
This was my cake. Not bad, right?
Here's an Instagram photo of what the cake looked like after transport (the butterflies wings collapsed) and after a slice (I couldn't help it!). The cake was delicious! It was baked already by Chef Joanna, we just decorated it for the workshop.
Will be posting more of my baking escapades soon! Be safe :)
