Toronto Class

Me and Flour Confections owner, Lisa

What started off as a dramatic trip to Toronto ended up being so wonderful. The drama began when I left my passport at home (after already turning around once in the car to go get my driver's license which I didn't need because you NEED a PASSPORT to go to a different country!) so my most amazing assistant Candice had to run to my apartment, retrieve my passport and meet me at the airport before they closed me out of my flight (she made it in 8 minutes!) Then once I got to Canada apparently you need a VISA to teach there which no one knew! But all ended well when Lisa and Robyn picked me up at the Toronto airport.

My fabulous class of professional cake designers

I taught the two day class at Flour Confections. It is such a great teaching space and kitchen with a beautiful store that is filled with tons of cake decorating equipment. The class did an amazing job and I love all the variety in colors and patterns. It was so much fun and I think everyone learned a lot. Here is a posting about the class from the owner of Flour Confections, Lisa Bugeja, on her blog.

Did I mention I love to teach?!

I'm so sad I missed you when you were here in Toronto. I would have loved to be in on that class. I love your cakes and I've loved seeing you on the Food Network. You've always been my Number One Favorite.

I am so jealous as I would be first in line to sign up for one of your classes. I hope you have plans to come to Seattle one day! Best part: no passport required! :)

Thank you for signing your book for my girlfriend at Flour Confections. She was so sad she couldn't take the class and meet you. She shows the book to everyone who comes over.

Thanks again,

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.
