Sisterly Cake Fun

Cindy and I got together with the Connelly sister for an afternoon of cake decorating. Gene joined us for lunch but not long after we started talking cake he went into his "man cove" otherwise know as the basement. We started off with WaWa hoagie- what could be better? Thanks Denise!
Denise made 4 pounds of delicious Buttercream Dream icing which managed to stretch across the many different cake's and cupcakes we designed.

Michelle challenged herself with a variety of cupcake adventurous from lady bugs to pigs! Her most favorite tip was the grass tip, she used it well as pictured above! Cindy and Denise ventured into different flowers and experimenting with coloring the icing. Cindy airbrush clouds that looked great. I brought some Royal Icing I made at home and spent the first two hours of the day coloring it and making parchment paper bags which all ripped. I believe that was the first and last time I will be using the parchment bags, but at least I tried. Royal Icing is very stiff but I do like the way the flowers turned out.
It's amazing how much "stuff" you need to make cakes but I think between all of us we had almost every product that Wilton makes to help in cake decorating. It's nice to break out those supplies and use them. Overall we had a successful day. Talked about cakes, life and many other things. I hope we can do it again soon!
