Cupcake Class

A couple of weeks ago, my friend Jen and I took a
3D Cupcake Animals class at
Amy Malone's School of Cake Decorating.
The class was Jen's gift to me for Christmas--an incredibly creative idea that combined fun and doing something together.

We all brought our own unfrosted cupcakes, then using dowels and skewers we anchored two or three together onto foil-covered syrofoam...and started decorating.
It was a blast.
We made a bunny, an owl, and a lion.
Here are examples of the classwork:

The bunny was embellished with jelly beans in frosting grass. The owl got a plastic cap and a paper diploma. Those bunny ears are just frosting piped over drinking straws!

One student was particularly creative--the candy flower in the mane, the three-dimensional eyes...

Amy Malone also demonstrated a shaggy dog.
The dog is placed atop a sheet cake. She later piped bone-shapes around the edge, and added a water dish. Too cute.

That is SO fun! My grandmother was a cake baker/decorator for a living. Wow, I miss those cake scraps!
