The first week I was suprised how much I learned about basic technique. Such as the right way to frost a cake to keep it flat, straight, without crumbs etc... Of course I adored my teacher, and when I went on to teach I employed all her stories, hints and clues.
This was the first night decorating, learning a star tip. I also learned that it's hard to achieve a nice bright red!
And the second night of decorating we learned flowers. And coloring techniques.
