Day of Sharing Wrap Up
We had a fabulous Day of Sharing on Sunday and are very grateful to everyone who came! Here’s a summary of some of the things discussed and links the instructors wanted you to know about.
First was Kerri Morris who showed us how to make a lovely Art Deco cake. She mentioned Bake Magazine, which is free for “qualified readers with managerial responsibilities in the retail, bakery cafe and intermediate wholesaler baking business in the United States and Canada” according to their website. She’s participating in contest and would love votes here.
Next was Lauren Kitchens who demonstrated a modelling chocolate luggage box and had us all in stitches with her great stories and gossip. She also talked about pricing issues and her recent Yoda cake. Someone mentioned that she had a coupon for her Craftsy class on her website but I don’t see it on there…if I get a link I’ll update this later (UPDATE: go to http://fancycakesblog.com/classes/ and scroll down to the Cityscape Cakes section for a link to the coupon!).
Lauren also has a YouTube video that show you her recipe and methodology for making modelling chocolate:
And a video on how not to do it!
Next, Mary Carmen Del Rio demonstrated a multi-tiered cake using non-toxic markers for decorative accents:
Stephen has a how-to video on the Fabric Flowers here:
Stephen also demonstrated some other techniques, like his Funky Flowers, mini flowers, and other cake accents, as well as showing what students learned in the extended classes in the days before the Day of Sharing:
Stephen would love some more Likes on his Facebook page!
The winner of this year’s Heart of the Club award went to Chris Cantrell! The club honours you for your contributions through the years, Chris!
Kimberly Chapman posted a full tutorial on how to make the purse cake balls she brought, so those of you who didn’t get one can make and chomp your own!
Here’s a link to a compilation video showing more photos and some video clips from the demonstrations.
Thank you to everyone who attended, to our fabulous instructors, and to our sponsors:
