Here is my final decorated cake for the Wilton Course 1 (Building Buttercream Skills) which I just finished tonight. This one is chocolate with raspberry filling made with berries from the bushes in my back yard. The 15 is for our 15th anniversary which is coming up on August 11.
Tonight we learned how to make the roses that are on the cake and how to write with icing.
Below is a photo of the cake after cutting. The raspberry filling has very little sugar so it stayed tart, a bit of cornstarch to thicken it, and I strained it to remove all the seeds.
