wilton decorating class!

hello, sweet friends!

thursday nights are going to be super fun for me for the next few weeks.
i'm currently taking:

tonight, i learned how to make buttercream frosting
ice a cake
and use a star tip.
woo hoo!

now, i knew how to make buttercream
and i knew how to ice a cake
but my piping skills are less than adequate.

i've got to say,
i'm now a pro with the star tip!

i'll make sure and take pictures next week when we get to decorate an actual cake! i'm pretty pumped... :)
& i really want this.
but, even with a 40% off coupon from michaels or hobby lobby i couldn't afford it!
so, i will make due with my hodge podge of decorating tools
and ooh & ahh at the girl in my class who has it.

friends, i realize i have not posted a recipe in a while!
but with my mama here
and all the crazy snow we've had lately,
i haven't made anything super awesome.

this weekend, i promise i will bring you some fantastic dessert-type-things.

until then,

dowlings, out!
