Pete here, well I hope you all had a great time over the holidays and are all rested up now because we have lots going on here at The Cake Cottage for you over the next few months. First just to let you know, Susan left yesterday for a two week trip to Florida to teach a ton of classes so naturally she will not be in the shop till January 25th.
We have a whole bunch of new classes for you on our schedule. Everything from kids classes to cupcakes classes to fondant classes to topsy turvey classes even a leap year class ( remember though that this one only comes around every 4 years so don’t miss out…..lol) so check out the schedule and see what catches your eye and will make your family and friends awe at your talent…..lol.
Ok, I have spoken to some of you about entering your cakes into shows to make you a better cake decorator. Let’s face it, when you put a cake out there to be judged then you will really bring your “A Game” to make it the best you can and believe me, this really makes you focus and concentrate on your cake and it will really help to make you a better cake decorator. It is also lots of fun to see what other cake decorators of all levels are doing these days all in one location. It is always better to see the cakes in person than just seeing pictures on the web.
So, on Saturday and Sunday March 10th and 11th , the San Diego Cake Club will be holding it’s 29th annual Cake Competition and Artistic Display, at the La Jolla Village Square Mall, called CONFECTIONS FOR A CAUSE. It is the largest show of its kind in California. This is a great show and how Susan herself really got launched into the sugar art world. There will be around 150 cakes on display, hourly FREE demonstrations, prizes, decorate a cupcake corner and most proceeds will benefit the San Diego Ronald McDonald House , so really, everyone wins. You can find more info at www.sandiegocakeclub.com I HIGHLY RECOMMEND that you put in a cake just to see what happens, heck you never know who will see it ( many times cake magazines also show up at this show , so who knows, you might even end up in a magazine ). But even if you don’t put in a cake you should at least go and see the cakes and the demos and get to mingle with lots of other sugar artists…….it is really fun!
For those of you not in our area keep a look out at Susan’s out of area class schedule to see if she will be teaching near you. I know that she is travelling a lot this year so we will be updating her schedule often.
Don’t forget to join us on Facebook, since that is where we will be putting most of our specials and sale announcements this year…..it is really the best way to keep up with what we are doing , new products that we get in, first look at new class projects and you can interact with us and let us know what you like and what you don’t ……hope fully it is more of what you like…..lol……you can find us at http://www.facebook.com/thecakecottage
So, go have a look at the new classes coming up, find one or two that you can’t live without….lol….and give us a call here at the shop and we will get you all signed up and ready to go !
