Hello everyone,

I got great news this week that I graduated with honors from Ecole Chocolate School for the Chocolate Arts!  I am now a Certified Professional Chocolatier.  It was an incredible course and I couldn’t have done it without my great instructors at Ecole-Pam, Heidi, and Rachel.  It is amazing how much there is to learn about chocolate, after all it is one of the oldest foods on the planet!

I was invited to give a demonstration and teach the culinary students at Keiser University this week.  We had a great time making spun sugar bowls.  Thank you Chef Imondi for making me feel so welcome and I can’t wait to come back next rotation.

Sugar classes are in full swing.  We are offering Class 1 Cast Sugar, Class 2 Pulled Sugar, Class 3 Blown Sugar, Advanced Stained Glass Sugar Pieces, and Mold Making right now.  The classes will continue to repeat each month.  We are scheduling our May homeschool classes and a Basic Cake Decorating Class for June.  Stay tuned!

We had students from Jacksonville, Pt. Saint Lucie, Sarasota, Sanford, Daytona, and West Palm Beach at this months sugar classes.  Thanks everyone for traveling and for all your great feedback on the classes.  We are going up to Jacksonville in the next few weeks so watch for times and dates to sign up.

This month our homeschool cake class was on video game critters.  The boys in our group gave us the idea so they could make all the critters for their birthday cupcakes.  They were from Plants VS Zombies and Angry Birds.  Everyone did a great job and we were all able to make 30 pieces so mom didn’t have to spend the evening making them all herself!

Happy Easter and Happy Passover!

Keep Life Sweet!
