Hello Cake Peeps!
Last weekend, I took a day off of work and gave myself a much deserved long weekend! What did I do with my downtime? Why, improved my cake repetoire of course! I hopped on a train after work (aka the train ride from hell pt 1) and made my way to Kitchener ON to spend time with my BCF and take a class at Icing Inspirations. The class- Susan Trianos' Tufted Billow Weave (TM) technique. I met Susan last year when I took Ron Ben Israel's sugar flowers class. Susan teaches at the Bonnie Gordon school of Cake Decorating and is an amazing artist. She also came up with her trade-marked technique that has led her to win many awards, including most recently, Cake Walk: Wedding Cake edition.
Susan is an amazing teacher. The class went by so quickly, but I left learning so much! I will post a pic of my class cake soon - I just want to finish a few things on it. One of the best things from the weekend was that Susan has given me the OK to teach the technique - so stay tuned to the blog and my website for the class announcement!
I am in the middle of a crazy holiday season (aren't we all?) and will try to post a longer post soon.....including a review of Sharon Zambito's 2 new sugar flower dvd's!
Until next time,
Happy Caking and Happy Holidays!
