Athlone Advanced Sugarcraft Course Weeks 9 & 10
Thank you so much, the flowers, and the card, were a lovely thought. Thank you Eileen also for the lovely card. I really enjoyed my 10 weeks both before and after Christmas. It was great to see you all improving so quickly and enjoying something I have for many years.
I have to put the last two weeks of the course together. I didn’t have my camera with me for Week 9.
Week 9 – We made chocolate paste. This is a paste made from melted chocolate, glucose syrup and water which when mixed together and left overnight can be rolled out and used for covering cakes and making flowers.
I made some up the day before the course so the girls could actually use it and we made a selection of milk, white and dark chocolate flowers from it.
Week 10 – The last week was used to allow the girls to make whatever type of cake they wanted. So we ended up with a wide variety of novelty cakes from couches, handbags, cars, books and teddies.
Here is a selection of some of them.
I have finally got most of my course photos together as a set on our Flickr site. Have a look and see if you can find yours. Keep in touch and enjoy sugarcrafting.
