I’m thinking of learning a new skill, cake decorating! One can never have too many hobbies, right?
I can do some really basic decorating, and I’m a good baker, but I want to learn more. Wilton offers classes, at a few places near me, so I may start there - has anyone done this? Worth the money/time?
I’m also fishing for some more immediate cake advice - I’m planning on making something fancy-looking for a Halloween party I’m having. Simple, but interesting - I want to do a two-tiered cake, probably square, with spider webs. But I don’t know what the best way to do spider webs would be. I don’t want to do something like this, which looks cool, but isn’t at all what I’m going for. I want it to look more like this, but maybe more like it’s been draped on the cake, rather than drawn on with icing. And black, since the frosting is going to be light (pale purple, or white if I can’t get a purple I like)
I’m not averse to using fondant for the web, I’m just not sure what the best way to do this would be.
