swirling and squeezing

few days ago, joanna and i went for a class on baking cupcakes and doing decoration.


these are the end products.....
the baking part wasn't that difficult, probably because with joanna's help!
the decoration was the difficult part and also the part which i enjoyed the most!
our teacher, who is quite nice and knowledgeable, showed us different ways to do the decoration.
it's amazing how the different little decorating tips can create fanciful swirls and shapes.....

when it was my turn to do the decoration,
i was so nervous that i couldn't stop giggling... 
with my hands shaking and giggles....  and of course, poor techniques,
my end products didn't quite come out as they are supposed to!  ^_^
they look more like a disaster......  no wonder somotu didn't dare to try any of them!








this is supposed to be a rose with little leaves around it.
obviously, it doesn't look quite like a rose!
if anything, i think it looks more like a cabbage in pink color!







this is a relatively easier one to make.....
and joanna helped me to top the big swirl with a little red heart (just for somotu).
but when i got home the cream got smashed and the heart was half buried by the cream....
didn't matter as somotu refused to try it anyway....









ah-ha!
and this is the total disaster!
what i was trying to make (or follow what the teacher showed us)
was the letter *A* with a little heart on the upper right.

as you can see, the letter *A* looks more like a mustache!!!! 
hahaha... i couldn't stop laughing myself....
and the little heart.....  hmmm  i don't know how to describe it.... hahahhaa

it looks so bad that i decided to just make it even worse by endorsing it with "angry flames" on top of the *A*!

this disastrous cupcake is called *the angry A*























no one wanted / dare to eat them...
not even sugar nor brownie as they didn't even come begging for them....
so i ate them all myself.....
hahahaha

but seriously, it was a fun class.
despite the horrible looking end products,
i do enjoy doing the decoration.....  and would like to give it another try....
next time, i would like to make a *happy A*
