CAPS Class and the NY Cake Convention


Two weeks ago I taught a class at the Center for Advanced Pastry Studies (CAPS) at the Institute of Culinary Education (ICE), of which I am a proud alumna. These classes are extra special because everyone in the class has at least a working knowledge of sculpted cakes and some have their own businesses. It was a three-day intensive hands-on class...I didn't let them sit for a second! As you can see from the photos they did an amazing job with the gift box cake. It was such a wonderful group of people filled with terrific questions, work ethic and a sense of fun!


My next group class will be at the NY Cake Convention held in New York City on January 2-5th, 2010. I'll be doing a demonstration on Saturday, January 2nd from 9AM-11AM and a hands on class that same day from 1PM-4PM. Sign-up here. There will be many amazing cake designers from all over the world.

And did I mention our first book, The Confetti Cakes Cookbook is in its fifth printing?! Thank you to everyone who has bought our books and for all your wonderful feedback!
Here are some great reviews.

Well, I did attend the NY Cake Convention. 7 demonstrators didn't arrive due to ill health or such. It was extremely disappointing, badly organised and lots of people were discussing asking for refunds. I came over from London!! I was promised a full refund but so far nothing. I was SO looking forward to meeting the people whose books I have bought... Confetti Cakes, Pink Cake Box etc... Tracey.

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.
