Lilyana, a teacher in a goverment school is very much interested in cake decorating. She called me a few days ago to enrol for our 3-tier wedding cake class. As it was the mid-year school break, Lilyana was free to join the class. She emailed to me a couple of cake pictures that she procured from the internet and wanted to learn to make the big sugarpaste flower cake toppers. I had to tell Lilyana that those flowers were not handmade but bought from baking supply shops. Lilyana bought a spray of sugarpaste roses and brought it to class. She was grateful to me for enlightening to her that the big artificial rose bouquet that are put on cakes were not handmade. She thought students will be taught to make the big roses bouquet. That being said, Lilyana was happy with what she learned in class and below is the email she sent to me with the picture of her cake. I could not snap any pictures with my camera as I forgot to put in the batteries. In fact the cake in this picture is not really complete coz Lilyana's camera batteries were 'going dead' as she had been snapping the various stages of her cake decorations.

This class was also attended by Michelle who wanted to learn to stack her cakes. She was also curious with the steam buttercream method and after seeing that plastic tupperware was used to melt the buttercream, she decided that she'll experiment with glassware. Frankly speaking, I'm also not a fan of steam buttercream if plastic is used in the melting of buttercream.I'm afraid the plastic components that melts in the tupperware may be toxic to us, expecially to young children. So to those of you who are consuming too much steam buttercream, please be aware of this fact.
