Not Just cards

When I was about 10 yrs old, my mom started to teach me how to decorate cakes.  I made my first real decorated cake by myself at the age of 16, when I entered it into our local fair and I got a blue ribbon for it. it was a Barbie doll stuck into the cake (this was before you could buy the top part of the doll and stick it into a molded cake..I had to bake my cake in a bowl and then cut the cake to accommodation the doll...not an easy feat).  I have been decorating cakes for close to 35 yrs.

My last BIG project was in August, when my mom and I  got together and made my sons wedding cake. This past fall, a friend and I got together to teach my church's Keepers group to decorate cakes for their cake decorating badge. 

Well, today, a local hardware store had a good sale on Wilton items. I was able to get some food coloring and decorator tips for a really reasonable price.  I can't wait to be able to use them and play to see what these new tips can do.
