What a whirlwind the last few days have been!  We hope everyone enjoyed our annual That Takes The Cake Sugar Art Show and Cake Competition.  In the next few days we’ll be posting all about the fun we had and the friends we made.  Here’s just a quick note about the raffle prizes for those that might have missed out.

All of the unclaimed raffle prize winners have been accounted for and have provided their contact information on the back of their winning tickets.  We have already contacted the majority of our unclaimed prize winners.  Thank you so very much for participating!


The following is a request from club member Angela:

EGG SHELLS NEEDED for Confetti Eggs at School Carnival in March.  If you are willing to help I would GREATLY appreciate it.  Please crack eggs leaving approximately 2/3 of the eggshell intact, wash, and returned to its original container.  Please e-mail a note if you will be able to donate!!!  I will then make arrangements to pick up the eggs from you!

With the annual cake show just around the corner, it’s time to get crackin’!

We are hard at work on our 2012 That Takes the Cake Sugar Art Show and Cake Competition! Instructor & Vendor applications are rolling in. We have so many great classes coming, you’ll have a hard time choosing! Next year’s theme is “Renaissance” and as you can see from the art at the top of the page the show will be called Cake-a-Lot. As usual we allow you to interpret our showcake theme in the broadest sense. Think castles, dragons, knights or beautiful renaissance architecture, it’s up to you! We look forward to seeing what you dream up.. Stay tuned for upcoming class listings.
