New York City was incredible!!  Hot, but incredible..

.

We landed and went directly to visit Colette Peters of Colette’s Cakes to see her bakery and get an autographed copy of her wonderful book, “Cakes to Dream On.”  You can visit her website at colettescakes.com.  She used to work for Tiffany’s and it shows in her amazing sugar work.

We were fortunate enough to get an advanced sugar class with Lauri Ditunno at Cake Alchemy.  We made beautiful coral pieces, swirled bases, and blown sugar fish, to name a few.   Lauri’s creations in sugar look like they belong in a gallery rather than something you could eat!  After class, we were invited to stay and work in the studio.  We enjoyed our days of working in a high paced New York City bakery.  Lauri works with very talented artists, so thank you to Christine, Claudia, and Lauri  for making our experience so memorable.

We visited more than a dozen bakeries while we were there.  I’ll give you my reviews in my next post.  🙂

See you then,

Sidney
