Hi everyone,

I’m getting ready to attend the Brevard Cake Artist’s Club meeting in Melbourne today.  We are planning for the Florida ICES Day of Sharing 6/26/11 and today’s demo will be by Maria on Henna Cake Art.  Next month we are meeting a week early because of Mother’s Day and we’ll be learning roses and monkeys.  Should be a lot of fun.

We had a full month starting with the Florida ICED Cake Competition in Ocala.  Lisa and Melanie worked so hard and it was a huge success.  It started at 8am with competitors lined up out the door to sign up!  They had categories for novice, advanced, and professional as well as cupcakes and accessories.  Tina’s cake with the doggy topper was fantastic!  Amita, who is now in our Cake Club, won 1st prize in the advanced category for her beautiful Indian Wedding Dress Cake.  Maria’s cupcakes were beautiful wedding bouquets and were sangria flavored.  They were yummy with goat cheese icing!  I got to take only one great class, Edna’s, and it was all about making gumpaste flowers without cutters.  I had hoped to take more, but we were vendoring all day.  We had 5 members of the BCA club attend!  Rosann helped us out at the Booth and we had a great time going to Cracker Barrel over and over!  LOL!  It was close to the hotel and we could walk.  Merrie Lee Reese ran the kids corner and Mercedes and Rebecca gave more classes.  It was an incredible day that we heard was attended by 300 people and had dozens of wonderful volunteers.  What a success!  It was great to see all our cake friends and meet new ones!  Next year it will be a 2 day event with a theme of Marti Gras.  Can’t wait!  Check out their website at http://www.floridaiced.com.

Simi had a fun cake month with purses, baby showers, birthdays, and donations.  The classes have been going great.  You can check out the schedule on http://www.simicakes.com for more information.  We are adding mold making classes next.  Our online store is still getting started, but you can see some of the items and call in for orders for now.

We hope to see everyone at the Florida ICES Day of Sharing 6/26.  For more info check out the website at http://www.flices.org.   And then it’s off to the ICES Convention in August!  Check them out at http://www.ices.org!

Keep Life Sweet,

    Awesome picture of the mask! No prejudice, of course/ The Kids Korner was great with about 50 kids coming thru there. Some had no experience at all, and all had a good time– especially Me!.
