I gave a class on buttercream basics at The Quirky Carrot in Alexandria.
There were six people in the class.
Everyone got a cupcake and a 6" cake to decorate.
After my demo, everyone went to town on their cakes.
Here's a pic of Julia, who owns the Carrot, taking pix of a busy student.
Lots of different techniques. Here a gal attempts basketweave...and did a great job!
Cupcake with green shells.
A sunflower cupcake in the making.
This cake ended up as a beautiful underwater scene replete with seaweed and fish.
Good piping bag techniques...
Here's the underwater scene getting its fishy.

The graduating class with their handywork. Well done class of 2014!
