Austin is Awesome

A Work in Progress!

Just got back from Austin, TX...and although I didn't see much of Austin the city, I got to experience the hospitality of the people everyday. I was a judge at the annual cake show, That Takes the Cake, where I was joined by an all-star team of fellow judges including: Bronwen Weber, Nicholas Lodge, Jacquy Pfeiffer, Debbie Brown (all the way from England!) and many others. We judged all day Sat. at the Crockett Center, then I gave a demo on Sunday of our gift box cake and on Monday I taught an all day, hands-on class of our sushi cake to 15 students.
All the cakes and the students were so impressive.

Here are a few photos from our class, I couldn't be more proud considering we had less then eight hours!Even one of my students posted about it!


You can see a bunch of photos from the demo's and the actual show cakes on the events facebook profile.

I'm off to Kansas but want you to get ready, the next Food Network Challenge we are in airs in just one month from today! More about it here.

Only in Texas!

Hi Elisa! I just wanted to stop by and thank you for the wonderful instructions on the Sushi Cake recipe.

I'd still call myself a novice cake decorator, but thanks to you I was able to pull off an awesome birthday cake for my husband.

I'd be honoured if you'd take a peek: http://www.aspoonfulofsugar.net/wp/2009/03/sushi-cake/

This houndstooth skirt is absolutely adorable Coach Outlet. The houndstooth pattern is so high fashion and funky. Even thougth this skirt is black Coach Coach Bags and white, the detail is so fashionable. It is a high waisted skirt, which makes it even better. The length of the skirt is perfect for a date or a day of shopping. You can purchase this skirt. Jean shorts are so cute Coach Op Art Bags and great for the summer time. They are good for wearing to the beach or to go shopping. These shorts are especially adorable because they Coach Satchel Bags have big buttons and a lot of pockets. The pockets and the buttons make the shorts look so much more feminine. Jean shorts, a v-neck shirt, gladiator sandals, wayfarers, and a locket necklace would be a great Coach Bags outfit for a party, the beach, or wearing around the house. Sometimes simple is better, and in this case, it is.
