Hey Everybody!

Last week I made a cake that was based on a design from Martha Stuart.  It was a dark chocolate cake with decadent whipped chocolate ganache covered in bright yellow fondant and dainty daisies.  I have attached a picture of it.  Also, I attended a class by James Roselle from Elle Cakes in L.A. on sugar flowers!  It was awesome.  We learned how to make an iris from France, cherry blossoms from Japan, a lily from Italy, a cattleya orchid from Brazil, and a tulip from Holland.  He is very good at teaching and is an amazing artist.  His edible flowers looked so real and came alive with airbrushing techniques.  I can’t wait to create  the flowers he made when I get back from NY.   I have attached a picture with James.  I’m all packed and ready to go!!!  Talk to you soon!

    Sidney, I was fortunate enough to see the daisy cake in person, and it was absolutely gorgeous!! And I was lucky enough to taste the daisy cake, and it was as delicious as it was gorgeous. I will keep the photo of you and the cake forever 🙂 I am very impressed with you and your talents.
