For the last four weeks, I've been working on acquiring a new skill set and it's of the creative variety. I know you're shocked, right? I was celebrating a birthday (not my own) with some friends of mine, one of whom is a masterful cake decorator. She had, in fact, made the birthday cake for the meal. As we chatted, I mentioned that I had been thinking about taking the Wilton Cake Decorating Course at Michaels or Hobby Lobby. She had taught the course before and offered to teach me the basics in four weeks. So the last four weeks she's been teaching me how to make rosettes, shells, vines, leaves, SHELLS, balls, roses, SHELLS! (Someone is a slow learner with the shells!) Tonight we put it altogether and this is what came out.
|Still not the best at making shells but in the end it's not that noticeable that I need to spend some more time at the beach!|
|Have to celebrate something!|
|It's amazing how great it looks when you put it altogether!|
Thanks bunches, Laura. You are an amazing teacher!
