Wow, 2 weeks into December already! Where has this year gone?
I have just completed my first ever cake decorating course. It was great, but....... I want to do the Wilton ones in Auckland!! I will be saving up for at least one of these next year, and hopefully will get to go early in the year. I was pleased to know that having self taught myself, I have done really well, there were no major points at which I went "oops shouldn't have been doing it that way!". I'm excited to have another cake to order on the cards and a logo being created.
Another course on my MUST do list is the Tempt cupcake course. I think that the 4 of us in the Northern Suburbs cake decorators club should go (won't take much to twist their arms) :) On that note, I set up up a cake decorators club for those of us in the northern suburbs as there is nothing this side of town. We have had two meetings and it's been a blast. In the last meeting we made fondant figures, ate too much and talked A LOT more. Sometime next year will probably align with the NZ cake decorators guild. We are hoping that a few more people will join us and eventually we will get the opportunity to run a few exciting workshops. Do you know someone who lives in the Northern/Mana area and loves to have fun with cakes? Send them to my facebook page Nicola's creative cakes and leave a msg :)
Spread the word friends, if you want a cake or cupcakes or know someone who will need a cake or cupcakes made I'm the one to come to! :)
Keep watching for more xmas cakes and cupcakes, there may even be a few mini cakes popping up soon! :)
