I decided to take fondant and gumpaste and skip Course 3. I do not like the idea of making a tiered cake for the reason of WAY too much cake, but I plan on teaching myself the fundamentals of course 3 through the books, which are sold at Hobby Lobby. Here is my first cake, which I made for the second class. It's LSU colors hehehe :) I'm definitely ready for football season. I'm gonna challenge myself to make a gumpaste tiger come football season. Geaux Tigers!
