Pokemon Cupcake Cake

Pokemon Cupcake Cake, originally uploaded by gensler97.

I have wanted to try making a cupcake cake for a long time. This is my first try. It was a lot of fun and can't wait to try another one soon. I layed my cupcakes out on a cake board and glued down the outside ones with frosting. This cake includes 24 cupcakes. Then I used the large Wilton Tip for icing the top. Using a hot spatula I spread the icing. Then just piped my border and added my decorations. Yum! Yum!

This is my cake from Wilton 2. I think I learned a lot in this class, and I think I learned a lot of fun things to try. The royal icing flowers where great. The basketweave was definitely a technique I couldn't not learn from a picture, but it is not hard to do. It just takes a lot of work to complete. The bird is made of colorflow, which is a lot like the royal I use on cookies, but way too hard to eat. I used oreo buttercreme frosting between the layers. Yum! I definitely think you should take Wilton 2. Wilton 1 was not very informational because I knew the basics, so I was extremely happy with what I learned in this class.
