Back in February (you remember February right? It was that time where you could go to malls and museums, and didn’t worry about how often you needed the bathroom …. yeah THAT February!) I was asked to do a Cake tutorial at the Illuminate women’s conference here in Victoria.
About 250 women would be attending and my session was titled ‘How to Hack a Supermarket Cake’. “PERFECT!” I said. After all, this was right in my wheelhouse. I love teaching, I love women and I love to laugh with friends. The bigger the crowd, the better. A perfect environment for an extroverted Cake-lover.
“And how much time do I have?” I asked with anticipation.
I clearly looked surprised because immediately “Well, we can probably give you Fifteen” was extended and like a free offer of unlimited toilet paper I TOOK IT!
So, for those of you who have been asking, here is the full session.
This is not suitable if you a) are attached to perfectionism; b) don’t like to laugh; c) can’t ‘listen quickly’ because it was done – VERY. FAST.
I’m sitting here at the end of New Year’s Day and am smiling when I think of 2017. I was blessed with so many wonderful clients. Brides, looking forward to their upcoming wedding day, spouses planning detailed surprise birthday parties for their significant other, and parents anticipating the birth or birthday of their special ‘littles’. So much to be thankful for, in both business and relationships. May you all be incredibly blessed in 2018 and find new ways to share those blessings with those around you!
And speaking of weddings, this cake was for a sweet couple, Christina and Ryan. Ryan is on our sound-tech team for the worship team I’m involved with at Glad Tidings in Victoria, BC.
They are a sweet couple and I was excited to spend some time focusing on sugar flowers for this cake topper, as well as creating this semi-naked cake with splashes of gold. Photography by the uber-talented Rachael Alexandra.
