I made two major mistakes in my prep work for the second Wilton class session.
- I forgot the eggs in the Dream Whip cake recipe (with extra 1/4 cup oil) my instructor suggested until after I had mixed the other ingredients.
- I forgot that I needed to add extra water to the Class Buttercream Icing recipe to use it to frost the cake until after I had finished.... Despite the fact that it was REALLY hard to frost....
The Wilton instructor suggested using this recipe with the addition of 1/4 cup oil. It turned out very tasty.
Note the lack of eggs. D'oh!
Whee! Vanilla Crisco flavored sugar!
Yes, I have to make sure everything is on the counter before starting. It's a compulsion.
The finished cake looks pretty good but was incredibly time consuming. I'm thinking that even knowing that I messed up the icing, the way to go here is to frost the cake like normal and then use a tub of the Wilton Decorating icing.
