My cake class last night was so great. We made fondant icing and then learned how to roll out petals and make roses! Who knew such a thing would bring me such joy? It was blissful. Next week we will decorate a styrofoam cake and I need to go and buy a few special icing tips and a piping bag plus the styrofoam cake from this place. This is just the ticket. It has been a really hard winter for me and spring plus this class will bring me back up to my normal self again. Now I totally see why Karina was so into cakes last winter! Cakes are just pure cheer, and you can always make another.
On top of all that, a sweet new bakery has just opened this week near me. She Takes the Cake is pretty and lovely and the cupcakes are madness, in a good way. Good thing it is bike riding season again, if you know what I mean.
