our first cake decorating class... success!

So I am so in the baking mood after yesterdays cake decorating class with Jennie from Vanilla Sky Cakes and have made the kids pancakes for breakfast...   think we will be trying to replicate the cookies I made on Thursday night to great acclaim from not only my family (who are a little biased) but also the girls in work!  

 Jennie in action!

Yesterday we had five ladies in the Basic Cake Decorating class - and they made a wonderful variety of cakes -f rom a Thomas Tank Engine (without the train!  we were looking for something else but no trains in Cleo Crafts :( ) to a Minnie Mouse theme, Elmo, one for a Mum's birthday and this cute spotty pink cake. 

Our next Vanilla Sky class is the Beginners Cupcake Decorating class on the 1st September and as I type, we have one spot left!   You can book through Cleo Crafts or by contacting Jennie directly on her own website (link at the top of this post).  

Next week is a feast for cardmakers with classes from Joy on Thurs and Fri mornings, and advanced on Thurs night and Saturday morning!  As always, booking advisable!

ACDC, cake decorating and Tiny Life fundraiser...

Just thought I'd share this fabulous cake with you - made by Aly Taylor for my brother in laws 40th (with his twin Gerard - who is not an ACDC fan btw - oops)  - it went down a MASSIVE hit - love it!    If you want to start getting into this kind of fabulousness, we have our first Basic Cake Decorating class this Saturday - will be posting photos and then the next one is in October.  In conjunction with Jennie from Vanilla Sky Cakes. 

Jennie is also doing cupcakes for a very special event in Greenisland on 26th August in memory of a little local boy Brodie Carson - here's the details:

Andrew Carson is holding Family Fun Day in the Football Grounds near Kinbayne Avenue, Greenisland. Sunday 26th August - lots for all the family. Alecia Karr Pink Tribute act and much more. Everyone Welcome
All proceeds will benefit TinyLife in memory of Brodie Carson

Hope to see you there!  And eat cupcakes!
