Pastry Course Day Eighteen: Structures, Bow and Drapery

This week we learned all about working with different types of structures. We also made a different kind of bow than last week and we made draperies.

It was really fun to do, but for some reason, my draperies weren’t working, my fondant kept breaking. My curtains were probably a bit heavy, ’cause the last drapery I made I rolled out really thinly and that gave a much better result.

Working with all the different kinds of structures really was a lot of fun as well. In a relatively easy way you can give your cake a completely different look!

I also really learned that patience is a virtue. Something that looks so simple can easily take you a couple of hours to create!
