And that's how my good friend Erin ended up teaching 15 young women some cake decorating basics. Erin - for the win.
First off, check out Erin's blog to see how awesome she is. She claims it's just a hobby right now, but she hopes to go full-time soon. She's currently taking orders for birthdays, weddings and showers, if you happen to be in the market for a kick-butt cake. These are some of her recent cakes:
She showed the girls how to level, stack and frost a cake. She also showed them how to pipe some basic buttercream designs.
|Pretty proud... my Beehives did a great job!|
|The Mia Maids' creation|
|The Laurels... they were more interested in eating....|
Then she taught them some basic tips for working with fondant! They got to color it, roll it out and put some basic shapes on top of cupcakes. I have to say, they did a pretty great job! Thank you so much, Erin, for sharing your time and talents with our girls!
