As I gear up to kick off my fall classes - starting with my classes at Sweet House in Las Vegas NV - I am very excited to be embarking on an new journey in my cake career!
Only my family and very close friends were in on the secret until late last week when I took to social media to make the official announcement.....I am over the moon excited to tell you all that I have proudly joined The Cake Tool Company family!
The Cake Tool Company is owned and run by the amazingly talented Mercedes Strachwsky and her family. I have long been a fan of Mercedes' work since purchasing here pdf tutorial, "The Magic of the Sea" now available on DVD!
Having just launched a little over a month ago, I answered an open application on facebook for artists to join the team, and honestly wasn't sure what my chances were given the number of followers the company has. Needless to say, when I checked my e-mail a couple of weeks ago, I had to make sure I wasn't dreaming (it was 5am afterall). I had an e-mail saying Congratulations. I thought I won something as I had entered a few contests they were sponsoring, and in all reality, I feel I have won....the first line actually read, "Let me be the first to say congratulations and welcome to the family"! There was some details I needed to send which was followed up with a phone call. All I can say is in a few short weeks, I certainly feel like I am part of the family.
The Strachwsky family has been nothing but welcoming and nurturing, helping me navigate these new waters I am swimming in! It feels like such a great fit, that every time we speak, I feel even better about this venture!
So what does all of this mean? Well for starters, I am a member of their team of artists hand chosen to help promote the brand.. You can view their retail store here. I will be playing with all of the line in the coming weeks (you all know this boy loves his cake toys) and giving you feedback, tips and tutorials for working with these awesome, high quality tools (and maybe a giveaway or two). It also means down the road you can expect to see more of me in the way of instructional DVDs (perfect for those of you who are to far to make one of my classes in person) and maybe even a few tools I design to help bring your sugar skills to the next level!
Please be sure to follow me and The Cake Tool Company on Facebook, and keep your eyes posted here for more updates on this awesome adventure I am starting! In the meantime, please leave me a comment here and let me know what you think my first digital class should be!
Until Next Time,
