“Having a penchant for fun and creativity, I decided to follow a dream and a love for baking and decorating cakes. I enjoy doing just about anything that requires working with my hands, whether it be making a cake or building shelves. With an eye and disposition for detail I put my whole heart and soul into everything I do. I love, love, love eating good tasting food and that carries through to my desire to serve it.

An artist at heart, creative to my bones, determined to attain perfection and never fail. That is me.”

INTERNATIONAL CAKE STARS COME TO AUSTIN

AUSTIN, Texas – July 3, 2012

Capital Confectioners’ 2012 “Day of Sharing” will feature demonstrations by local, national, and international sugar arts experts including the UK’s famed flower maker Alan Dunn.

“Alan Dunn has been creating botanically perfect flowers for some 20 years,” said Kyla Myers, president of Capital Confectioners. “He literally wrote the book on the subject – almost a dozen of them!”

Dunn is a sought-after presenter, having taught extensively throughout the UK as well as in the US, Canada, Japan, Holland, Sweden, The Channel Islands, Brazil, South Africa, Malaysia, Australia, and New Zealand.

“It’s been over a decade since he’s taught in Texas, so we’re thrilled to be hosting him at our event this year,” Myers said.

Other demonstrations will be provided by Yvette Humbert, Dawn Parrott, Kathleen Lange, and Lorraine McKay. This year’s theme is “Holidays”, so presenters will be incorporating that into their demonstrations and club volunteers will do likewise with donated desserts for all.

Registration is now open at http://dos.capitalconfectioners.com/registration.php . The cost is $45 ($50 after August 1) and includes all demonstrations, a continental breakfast, and a catered lunch. Vendors and raffles offer extra goodies for budget-friendly prices. Additional classes with Dunn and several other demonstrators are also available before and after the event.
