A week and a half ago I made a cake for a friend’s baby shower. It has been on my “to-do” list for a while. I LOVE the technique and enjoyed making it.

Fondant Class March 18, 2012

Filed under: Cake Decorating — thehobbyholic @ 2:25 pm

Two months ago I took my first advanced fondant class. I brought my cake and some of the basic supplies but was lacking in a few key fondant supplies. I argued that I wasn’t given a supply list! Anyway, everyone in the class was very helpful and filled in where my supplies left off. And now they joke about showing up to class with only a cake and going home with a fully decorated cake. Making new friends can be fun. 🙂

Here is my yarn basket cake.


Topsy Turvy Cake March 17, 2012

I took a fondant cake decorating class today. It is they advanced project class. We work on a specific cake or technique each time. If there is something we really want to try out or learn then they schedule it for a class. I asked to learn how to make a Topsy Turvy Cake. I’ve always thought they were fun to look at and had no idea how they are made. LOVED it. Learned so much.



Paper Piecing March 7, 2012

A few weeks ago I took a paper piecing quilt class with my mom. Now paper piecing is right up there with the “A” word for me (applique). Something that looks a little more complicated and involved than I’d really like to get. BUT I’m happy to report, I liked it. Or at least this method of it.

I have more stars completed and am almost done with my table topper, but here is a sneak peek.

I am apart of a MOPS group near me. We are always looking for fundraising ideas and so I thought I’d do a cake decorating class. Right up my alley and a number of people have shown interest. I’m very excited. This is the cake we will be making. (Of course, I had to make a sample!)
