Free Gumpaste Demo

January has been a very exciting month so far 
and it is only the 8th...

I try to fit everything in I LOVE to do and NEED to do but there just isn't enough time for it all. So, I end up doing what is FUN and get behind in what should be done..

But, this year I promised myself it will be different!!!

This leads me to write this today about the FREE DEMO I will be doing at ABC Cakes in Orange, CA on January 18th from 10 to 11:30. It will be a great demo for those new to gumpaste or wondering what gumpaste is and how to work with it. I will show you how to make it from scratch, coloring gumpaste, and how it work with it. I will make some flowers, show how to add petal dust, tell you about the tools, cutters and veiners.. It will be an overall demo!!!

You can call ABC Cakes to reserve your spot. 714-633-2055

It is already the 3rd day of January and I have so much to do and to catch up on...

I thought I would start with the end of the year and share what I did last. I was honored to be a guest contributor to Bird's Party Blog (Unique Party Ideas and Printable Fun). When I first started my blog several years ago I found her page and have been following her since. I get lots of ideas about photographing my sugar flowers and in brief she has one fantastic blog!!!!

Here is the link to the Mistletoe tutorial I did which is also on her pinterest. I made a simple and quick tutorial for those who don't decorate or make sugar flowers which I believe is doable. Most of the supplies can be purchased at Micheal's Craft store too...

 Hope you enjoy the tutorial and although Christmas and New Years have passed you can keep it and make them for next year. Just click on the link below...

Well, it seems 2014 just sprung up on me.. Not really but it feels like it has. I have been quite busy this past year with the sugar flowers and have neglected posting to my blog. Time is hard to manage at times and although I have a list of to do's I don't always get them as much as I try. 

I started teaching as a regular at ABC Cakes in Orange CA.. I have just finished my first tutorial I will have for sale, plus a few other tutorials that have been published in magazines and on a blog..

The biggest news for me is I am teaching my first class at the Texas Cake show in February of this year..I can't wait to attend and meet many of the people I have only had the opportunity to talk to online. 

This is just in brief what I have been up to and will post and share in more detail... this is a brand new year with brand new adventures and a chance to become a better blogger too...

Happy New Year

Cymbidium Orchid Tutorial

Why am I so excited you ask???    The photo Tutorial of the Cymbidium Orchid I did will be available in the next four weeks on the SugarEd Productions Sugar Art School website. 

It was a great experience to make these photo tutorials. I figured out a system, I guess you can say of writing and photo taking. I found out during this process how many steps there really are to make a sugar flower. I never really gave it much thought until I had to photograph each step of the way...
