Self-Improvement Saturday – Just Do It.

We all desire progress one way or the other.  Our plans and goals won’t fall into our laps while we sit and watch the television.  We have to get up and get going. Is there something you are supposed to do? Just do it.  I have so many plans for my cake decorating business but sometimes, getting up and taking steps can be so daunting. I guess I will just do it anyway.

Below is a lovely article on taking action.

What an amazing week – so much to celebrate! I am grateful for all of the things we did on the 4th – each being special in their own way. The 5k run with our family was such a fun (and active) way to start the day and it was fun to see so many people out in the community! A new tradition for sure. We then met some friends down at the beach and I am truly grateful for all of the amazing people we have met here. Then on to this beauty for a BBQ, fireworks and sleepover! I had no idea the fireworks over the bay were so spectacular and I’m glad we left the bubble to go! It’s funny though, we hemmed and hawed about not doing our usual – block party and fireworks from our yard that we can see from neighbouring Del Mar – but sometimes you just have to say yes to new opportunities and make them happen!

Foods decorated with edible images or printouts are fit for human consumption.

Printing edible images are usually quite expensive.  To reduce costs, bakers sometimes use stickers and normal paper printed images or real pictures but these must not be placed directly on the cake and the client must be informed that the images are not edible.


Skill update – Cake Lace

Happy new month.

Cake lace has been around for quite a while.  I decided to go for a little training to enable me make the best use of the technique. It was quite easy to master and the cake below was for a customer after my training.
