Cake decorating with the Youth!

This last Tuesday we had Young Women's mutual at my place. We have mutual on Tuesday every week. I love the Young Women's program. It helps the youth feel their shelf worth, value themselves and come to know they are beautiful daughters of God. This mutual turned out better than I thought it would. I taught them about cake decorating. I have been wanting to teach some cake decorating to the youth and have been asked before but had never actually got to do it yet. It was fun for me to show the girls all the cakes I have made. I will posts some sometime. After I showed them all the cakes. I decorated a cake to show them what they were going to do. I also showed them how to use a few tips to make roses, balloons, star flowers and writing on a cake. They each got to decorate their own little cake. They had so much fun and did such a great job!

This is the cake I decorated for them and the one they duplicated. Some of the girls got creative and put what they wanted on their cakes.

Here are the girls and their beautiful cakes! You might want to click on the picture to enlarge it so you can see their works of art.

From left to right starting at the top: Clair, Laura, Hannah, Erin, Ida and Paula.

Great work girls!

What a fun activity for the girls!

We had an enrichment class on it, and the ladies all said it was one of their favorite classes.

Oh my gosh, I love to decorate cakes! Last year for christmas, Santa was SOOO nice to me and brought me my 101 decoraters box with EVERYTHING in it! But, I'm pretty sure I've never created anything that good before. They were beautiful! How long have you been decorating cakes??
