My Final Cake Class: Course 1

Today was my final Cake Class for Course 1! Khaminh and I will be starting the new Cake Class: Course 2 a week from today! I am so happy with the overall outcome of what I learned in class! It was definitely an awesome class. Today, we did our final cake and due to a special request I did mine blue. I decorated it and everything! I'm so happy with the end result. The cake itself was Devil's Food Chocolate Cake with Cheesecake filling! I already cut it, it was absolutely delish!

I think it came out pretty nice!

Thanks for looking!

Happy Baking and Scrapping!

I'm Back!

Wow! Haven't blogged in a while! I miss you all and I miss being here in my scraproom and playing with all my goodies. I am finishing up with my cake class tomorrow, but will be beginning my 2nd course the following Thursday! I'm so excited. I have fallen in love with this little hobby! It's not going to replace my scrapbooking obsession, but it has definitely opened new doors for me. And my husband loves it! He loves that there are always goodies to eat around the house. I did one of my good friends bridal shower this weekend.. and I wanted to share some of the things I did for it.

These are the prizes for the games, the favors, and the center pieces. The colors for the bridal shower were hot pink and orange.

These are the handmade favors. Simple, yet I love how they came out. I melted the white chocolate (went with Ghirardelli, my fav.) and shaped them into hearts. I did food coloring to match with the them and then labeled them and tied a bow with both colors.

This is the guest/good wishes book for the bride. I made it out of chipboard and matted paper! I love how it came out and looks so cute!

And here aree the cupcakes that my friend Khaminh and I worked on! We did the decorations and everything! I was so proud of how they looked! I'm so happy we are taking this class together!

Thanks for stopping by! I'm going to try to not abondon my blog for so long. Which by the way reminds me... Maxx and Peanut (my doggies) have a blog of their own. It's The Adventures of Maxx and Peanut! Please check it out and visit them!

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Scrapping!

Scrapper in a Cake Class!

Oh yeah! As you probably already knew... I signed up for cake decorating classes and today was my first day! Today was more like an introduction day, but we were able to get hands on! We did cookie decorating today and I'm so proud with my results. Here are some snickerdoodles I decorated with the Star Tip!

Next class won't be until 2 weeks from today because our instructor will be out of town. But it's perfect because she told us to practice because the next class will consist of us decorating a cake and fill it by ourselves. We were taught that today, but it wasn't hands on. I'm so excited! Let's see what I come up with next week!

Have a great rest of the day!
And Happy Baking Scrapping! ;o)
