It's been a while since my last posting. In that time I took a class with Master Cake Designer Toba Garrett at Institute of Culinary Education. We worked with different types of buttercream, marzipan and modeling chocolate. I had a tough time with the modeling chocolate but it was my very favorite part of the class. I'm definitely planning on practicing more so I can master it.
Before adding the finishing touches.
My first chocolate modeling experience. Not too shabby;)
Making the ribbon wasn't nearly as tough but I just positioned my rose in such a way that I could hide the imperfections.
