So not exactly quilting related, but I did take a cake decorating class a few weeks ago with my friend Ingrid. It was at Dragonfly Cakes, and it was really fun.
We were provided with two 6 inch cake rounds, which we cut in half and buttercream-ed together to create a four layer cake. Then we covered it all with a crumb coat, then a final coat, and then finally some fondant.
I created tons of triangles out of scrap fondant, and arranged them on my cake.
Looks kind of like a quilt, right?
In any case, the class was really fun. I doubt I'll ever use fondant on my cakes I make at home, but it was entertaining for the class. The buttercream portion of the class was informative, and next time I make a full layered cake I'll definitely feel more confident.
