Figurine Sculpting Class

Thursday, February 25th, 2010

Well, one thing I do look back on this year and am sad about is the lack of classes I was able to teach because I was so busy and overwhelmed with opening up a new shop of my own.  Now as much as I wish I could say that I am offering a class really soon, I can’t, BUT don’t worry because I have an amazing class that I want to pass along to all of you cake lovers!  I just found out from Kyla, who heads up the Capital Confectioner’s in Austin, Texas that they will be hosting a class here in Southern California.  The amazingly talented Lorraine McKay will be teaching you how to sculpt realistic figurines!  This is one skill that is very hard to learn by yourself and I highly recommend taking this great opportunity to learn under Lorraine.  She is offering four different classes at Classic Cake in Garden Grove.  To get all the information about the classes definitely check out their website!  Here are just a couple photos of Lorraine’s beautiful work!  Definitely let me know if you will be going to the classes!

Purse Cakes Plus “Baked” Cookbook Giveaway!!!

Friday, November 21st, 2008

Thanks to everyone for your sweet comments about my niece’s birthday cake!  I had a great time doing it and it is so nice to receive such lovely compliments from all of you.  As a fun reward for being such a great blogging community I am going to do another giveaway (the real thanks goes to the “Baked” marketing team for giving me the books…THANKS!!!)  So make sure and check out the end of the post to get all of the details!

Before I share my mouth-watering photos of their salted caramel sauce I made I first wanted to show you the cute purse cakes that my students made last week. These cakes were filled, frosted, sculpted, and decorated in about 3 hours, so props to them.  Also, this was the first time most of them had attempted a carved cake, so I was doubly impressed! Hope you enjoy the photos!

Now onto the giveaway!  I have to say that I am absolutely smitten by the Baked cookbook!  The whole book is filled with gorgeous photos and mouthwatering recipes!  It has been by my bedside for the past month getting looked at over and over again.  I recently had the chance to try out their salted caramel sauce and I have to say that it is my new favorite flavor…this sauce will knock your socks off!  Here are the tempting photos I promised!  I will post the yummy recipe on Monday when I announce the winners!  

I forgot to mention that I am giving away TWO Baked cookbooks so get excited because your chance of winning just went up!  All you need to do to enter the contest is name the type of purse that you think I should make for my new purse cake that I am making next week!  Remember the deadline is Sunday night…can’t wait to hear all of your ideas!
