I was asked to teach a basic class on cake decorating. That is especially ironic since I don't know that much. Still, I love to decorate cakes for my kids birthdays and I've been wanting to work with fondant again, so I decided in the 7 minute power class (taught 5 times) I would show the ladies how to make a fondant ghost (or something of the sort).
It went pretty well. I learned more about fondant, like buying name brand IS important. (marshmallows and powdered sugar). I also learned how time consuming it is to make and color, plus you need a butter cream icing so it tastes decent.
Overall, I'd call is successful. Hopefully I'll get to work with it again soon!

what was the difference between the name brand and generic? One was saggy or something? hey, I know, why don't you add something really time consuming like cake decorating to all those parties you're planning, just to up your commitment and stress? :)

I didn't know you could do that. That's cool!
