I'm back!

One of our "bio" Bat-Mitzvah cakes
Once again I have let too much time pass between blog entries but I assure you it is not because I haven’t wanted to write nor has it been because I have just been hanging out!
Well, my brother tells me I put way too much thought into my blog entries and he is probably right (after all I am a perfectionist in all that I do) but it has also prevented me from updating the blog often enough.

As you can imagine the last Food Network Challenge took a lot out of me, emotionally and physically. But it’s really the stuff I do everyday, cakes and teaching that have kept me the busiest. I just returned from Toronto, Canada (and yes, you need a Passport to travel to Canada these days…let’s just say I had a little adventure at the NY airport) AND you need a VISA in order to teach there…yes, another adventure was had by myself once I arrived in Canada and was escorted to immigration! More on this class later.

The "Bald" cake before it is decorated (see above)
One of my favorite moments in cake design is when the “bald” cake is ready to be decorated. Bald, meaning a cake that is completely unadorned but has been baked from scratch, split, filled, covered in rolled fondant, even painted and is ready to be decorated with all of our wonderful sugar decorations. Here is one such cake, before and after decorating. Spring has brought us many Bat-Mitzvah cakes this year.

Yep, it's sugar!
So my next few postings will be fairly quick and will showcase some of our recent cakes and classes….not the cake we did for a celebrity because we had to sign legal papers that won’t allow us to talk about it!

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.
