Would love to say that today was 100% goodness but the fact that I sitting here reporting in with a glass of wine in one hand and cheesy puffs in the other (who says you can't take the girl out of Mosman) is a tell tale sign that it was different ....
Today was all about flowers - in royal icing and in gumpaste
We started with the drop flowers (lovely) and then went on to roses (rose buds) which is where the day went downhill quickly for us all. They looked easy but once you got stuck in, the formations just didn't make sense. One chinese buffet later for lunch and things looked alot better.
After lunch we continued with the roses and just got with .... after about 50 of them (little bit of an over estimation) we all actually got the hang of it ... mind you, don't think you would find mine in any botanic books.
Carnations and 1/2 carnations were next which looked great and were fun to do too.
Lillies finished the first part of the day for class and which was an excellent plan .... they were alot easier and looked good too.
Thank christ we have 2 of the most patient teachers in the world. Imagine just for us individually we find it challenging but for Debbie and Lorena to have to explain it 12 times each .... good luck!!!
When we started the week we were given a box of icing tips which just looked like small little metal things but now it all actually makes sense on what each one does ... its actually quite incredible how much we have learnt and done so far ....
