Dia de Los Muertos--Day of the Dead!

Day of the Dead Cake Project Class is coming the day before Halloween: Wednesday, Oct. 30 from 6:30-8:30pm, provided we get enough sign ups--so sign up early if you can so you have time to bake a great cake and get your stuff together--make sure you get a syllabus when you register! It's a buttercream cake with a few bits of gum paste and fondant--new uses for the skills you have learned!.

Spooky Cupcakes

I did a Show-in-Tell demo at Michael's in Lisbon today, and these are the resulting cupcakes:

All easy to do with techniques learned in Course 1 using just a few tips: rounds:1, 2, 3, 5, 12 , the basket weave tip:47, the grass/hair tip: 233, small leaf tip 352; a few colors, some sprinkles and sixlets in halloween and fall colors, and a spatula. I had some ready-made "eyes" and voila! fun characters for your party!
