It has been an exciting week! Last week, Flour Confections advertised that they will be hosting the "King of Sugar Flowers" - Ron Ben Israel. Ron has been featured in such reknowned publications as O, Martha Stewart Weddings, and The Knot to name a few. His creations have also been featured on the small and big screen! The course is costly, but well worth it. It took me alot of time to decide to go, and when I did, it was too late - the class was sold out! That is until Ron was convinced to add a second set of classes the week before the first set. It looked like I wasn't going to make it, but the cake Gods were smiling down on me, and the scheduling was able to work itself out!
Needless to say, I am booked for the class, and have started the countdown - 137 days to go! I have started fundraising to offset the costs of the course - there will be a different treat being sold each week at work, not to mention the fact that I have started taking orders for sugar flower arrangements that people can display in their homes.
Happy Canada Day and Happy Caking!
