Cake Wreck

I took a cake decorating class last summer at JoAnn's for several reasons:
  • partly to channel my creative energy,
  • partly to learn how to ice a cake without getting crumbs everywhere,
  • partly because I was lured in by the $15 class fee (just wait till they hit you with the materials list... that's how they get you!),
  • but mostly it was an excuse to avoid diaper duty (doody) at home for 2 1/2 hours a week.
The nice thing is that after four classes, you can make some cakes that can actually pass for pretty good (my expectations were not that hard to surpass).

I made this cake for my daughter's 4th birthday. Not bad for 4 weeks training, huh?

But to see cake decorating taken to a whole new level, you have to look at this blog. Especially this one. Hilarious. It's what I aspire to.

For a full list of classes JoAnn's offers (beading, knitting, pom pom wall hangings) you can check out their schedule. It's crafty.
