Cake Decorating

I tried to take a cake decorating class over the summer in Allentown, but I was the only person to sign up for the class so they canceled it! I was really sad but hoped I would be able to take a class when we got back to Ithaca. I called the craft store here and they teach classes on Sundays! I asked if a teacher would be willing to teach us a different day if we could get five or six people to take it. Luckily, I was not the only one in the ward interested in taking a class! Five of us signed up! It was a four week class and I really enjoyed it. I learned a lot. Although it did take tons of prep time (about 2-3 hours each week), I think it was worth it. I want to take the next level classes sometime. I know my cakes don't look great, but I improved each week and I hope to make cool cakes one day. I didn't take a picture of the sugar cookies we decorated the first week, but mine were not impressive at all so it's okay. The biggest thing I learned: cake decorating cannot be rushed!

Look at the woven pattern on the side of that cake! How do you even do that? Looks great, Emily!

And I'll cry a tear for the loss of your Beetle too. I might not even tell Andrew. I don't think he'd take it well. He really liked that car. :-)
