Cup Cakes

One of my neighbours this year is a highly talented Cake Decorator.  She is so talented that she won three first prizes (as well as assorted other prizes) in the cake decorating section at the Easter show this year.  She has a blog that showcases many of her wonderful creations called The Cupcake Gallery

She runs cupcake workshops to teach others how to make beautiful cakes also.  Today Abby and I had the opportunity to attend one of her workshops.  We had a ball learning how to decorate Christmas cupcakes.  There were six designs and we had to make one of each them.

Abby's final achievement

My final achievement
Abby was the youngest person Jo has ever had in a workshop, but she did exceptionally well.  The cakes were easier to make than I thought they would be, and at the end we felt as though we had done an excellent and somewhat professional job.  Jo is a fantastic teacher, patient, encouraging and great at explaining fiddly bits.

Abby's cakes are fabulous! (Your's are too but you've been doing creative things for longer.) I'm really impressed with her talent. It would have been a lovely thing for you to do together too.
