Long Overdue

I don't even know where to begin. Work was pretty crazy this last month and I haven't been unable to post the fabulous things I have been making and learning in class. Cake has been the new theme of the section I just started. Making and decorating cakes has been such a blast and I look forward to every class. There is just something about cakes that creates a feeling of excitement. I think it is because all birthdays, weddings and most other celebrations involve a cake. I'm not the only one who is excited about making cakes, my work is thrilled that I bring a cake into the office three days a week.
