I reviewed Composi-Mold on my blog after the folks who make it contacted the club through our page, and I am so impressed by it that I’ll be doing a demo of it along with Jennifer for the August club meeting. Until then you can get a preview of what it’s all about here.

Note that this is me speaking as myself and the club does not endorse specific products, although the club is happy to help bring vendors and cake decorators together.

 

Come one and all to our monthly meeting tonight! 7 pm at Make it Sweet. New folks always welcome. We’re very newbie-friendly, and you don’t have to have any experience decorating cakes or anything. Come by and check us out. Details here.

Secondly, I heard on KUT this morning about the Texas Pie Kitchen, which trains low income adults in culinary skills. They need volunteer bakers to help out, so if you’re interested, click the link and find out more. Or maybe buy some pies. Mmmm, pies….

 

I had a wonderful time demonstrating some “Trendy Fondant Accents” to the club during our August meeting! Thank you so much! Here are the tutorials on what I showed.

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.
