Homeschooling has blessed me with many friends. One of which has her own bakery. Since November, I’ve been taking decorating classes. Well, I missed the first one, and took my first one before Christmas.
If you live in the DFW-Area, please “like” the Tiny Kitchen Cakery on FaceBook. She is taking the summer off for classes, etc. but has promised to start up in the Fall. Also, her husband is a wounded Vet. Please keep them in your prayers. The Gary Sinise Foundation is righting a wrong for them and they are getting a new home, back out in McKinney (bummer for Ft. Worth). Lovely people. Sigh.
On behalf of Mother’s Day, though mine has passed, I took a couple decorating classes – FOR ME! Yep! Last week, I took two classes. One was my third cookie decorating class, where we did these sweet Mother’s Day cookies. Never mind the imperfections, it’s two hours with women, decorating cookies. And whilst my husband travels, I need time with people other than my child. The cool thing was that when I got home, our neighbors were out with their new baby girl and I got to share cookies with others…. oh, and my son as well.
Two days later, I went back to her home for a cupcake decorating class. I was literally hyperventilating at the thought of doing these flowers. And it was so much fun. Ok – not as easy as cookies, for real…. but – fun, none-the-less.
The white ones are mums (don’t judge, it was my first try). The light pink are peonies. The darker pink are roses.
