Club Meeting: January 2012
Several new faces this meeting! Welcome, all!
Pearland had their Day of Sharing last weekend. The demonstrators’ handouts are now available online on their website: http://www.pearlandcakesociety.com On February 5th, the Texas ICES will have their Day of Sharing in Montgomery, TX. Please visit their website for more information: http://texasices.org/feb5thdos.html
The club is a buzz with excitement for our upcoming 8th annual That Takes The Cake Sugar Art Show and Cake Competition. We announced some volunteer opportunities and perks. Please use our online volunteer registration form if you’re interested: http://thattakesthecake.org/index.php/contact-us/volunteer-contact-form/ We’d like volunteers to work a minimum of a 5 hour shift. It’s a whole lot of fun, so don’t miss out!
Irene is hoping to get her hands on some of these darling cake pendants to sell at the show:
Our next monthly club meeting will be a little different. We bumped the date up to February 7th (to free up Valentines Day). It will also be at Make It Sweet‘s brand new location:
Crossroads Shopping Center
9070 Research Boulevard
That will be our last club meeting before the big show! We’ll be doing some projects for the show at this meeting and also at several smaller meetings during the month. Lots to do and not much more time to do it in! Check back on our blog, Facebook, and MeetUp pages for updates on when we’re meeting and where.
This meeting’s demonstration was given by our new member: Kathleen Boyce. She shared with us some techniques for creating a purse cake.
Kathleen also brought in the dragon cake she learned to make in Sylvia Wilson’s class:
Big thanks to Kathleen for sharing with us and to Charlotte for the yummy desserts!
