Putting the cake together

Last night was my last class for my Wilton 2 cake decorating class.  I learned how to do the basket weave technique and how to do a rope border and got to use the flowers I made on the cake.  The bird and the birdhouse were made a few weeks ago and were very fragile.  Both of the birds I made broke on the way to class so I was only able to use half a bird in the middle of the flowers on top of the cake.  All in all I am very happy with this cake, the only thing I would do differently is fewer leaves just below the flowers around the house.  My next class will be dealing with fondant and I am so excited about it.
For Mother's day, Alan bought me a 101 piece cake decorating kit.  I know it isn't mother's day yet, but he couldn't wait to get it and give it to me.  I am absolutely thrilled and can't wait to use it.  Cake decorating has been a blast and I can't wait to post more pictures.
