The morning started with me setting up the kitchen, getting the icing made, baking muffins, and cutting fruit.
Once everyone arrived, we strapped on my hodge-podge aprons and got to work!
I gave a quick lesson on baking tips, tools and tricks, and taught everyone the trick to making my Buttercream Icing (hint: it's margarine)!
Once our cakes were leveled and on our decorative boards...it was time to start icing! I have recently discovered a new icing technique (thanks to this lady http://www.youtube.com/user/SeriousCakes) so I went over that and we got to smoothing.
Everyone was meticulous and aimed for perfection! : )
Once everyone's cake was perfect...
we were ready to start the fun part! Decorating!!
Jessica, our artist, was making an adorable portrait of Kujo, the dog!
Jennifer was going 100% girlie with her creation! I'm sure her daughter was her inspiration!
And Leslie took inspiration from one of my oven mitts!
And then I laid down to rest for just a second...
(Bubba and Bailey did too)
