The Brevard Cake Artist’s Club meeting was a great success this month.  We had a great turn out and our members volunteered to help at the Brevard Day of Sharing this June (flices.com).  We are very excited to host a day filled with classes, fun, and networking.  Mom gave a demonstration  on Mardi Gras Masks that was very informative and perfect timing!  Next month the demo will be the use of edible henna designs on cakes.

I am gearing up for the Ocala Cake Competition in less than 2 weeks.  I won’t be entering this year, but will have a booth set up to demo my sugar and tools.  One of the show pieces I made for display is a Stained Glass Seahorse.  It is 100% edible sugar/isomalt.  I made it freehand without a template.  It looks beautiful in the sun.  Please stop by and check it out!  We can’t wait to see all our friends from around the state at the competition.  We will have 6 members of our club attending.  If you would like to enter or come and enjoy the competition you can find all the info at http://www.floridaiced.com.

Looking forward to the weekend with Rosann and teaching sugar classes.

Keep Life Sweet,

Hi everyone,

Luckily, “It’s All About Chocolate Extravaganza” was the same week I needed to create Bon Bons for Ecole Chocolate.  I invented a few new flavors including Pom Green Tea, Caramel Sea Salt, Pistachio Pumpkin, and Honey Orange, along with a few classics like Coconut Butter Truffles.  The Chocolate Extravaganza was very well attended.  We had 300 come thru and try our chocolates and White Chocolate Challah Bread.  The Crown Plaza was elegantly decorated and they raised money to support  Livestrong and the Brevard Jewish Community School.

This months classes were St. Patrick’s Day Cupcakes and a Molded Sugar/Isomalt Class.  Coming up are classes in “critter” sculpting, pulled sugar flowers and vines, and bunny and lamb cupcakes.  Check out the schedule on http://www.simicakes.com.

Bonnie and Todd had a beautiful outdoor reception on the beach to celebrate their marriage.  They had us create a cupcake and brownie seashell theme.  We even included gluten-free cupcakes and brownies for the guests with special dietary needs.  And Kelly hosted an open house for her office in Down Town Eau Gallie with the “Your Turn Key to the Community” theme.

Next week we will be attending the Florida Iced Cake Competition in Ocala and donating door prizes to raise money for the Make A Wish Foundation.  Stop by and say “hi”!

Until next time, Keep Life Sweet!
