Cake decorating: the latest in get together activities for girl friends

Introduction to Cake decorating course at Bonnie Gordon Cakes schoolEver since I started watching Duff Goldman on Ace of Cakes, I want to try out cake decorating. After making your own ceramic vase, designing your own jewelry and starting a scrapbooking club, it may be time for you and your girl friends to try out cake decorating.

But let face it, you need lots of cake decorating tools, special ingredients and a minimum of training. So why not take a course. I discover last year a fabulous Toronto-based school on cake decorating and design. The classes at Bonnie Gordon Cakes seem all very interesting.

Bonnie Gordon Cakes offers a full range of courses to satisfy all skill levels. Overall the courses explore numerous techniques. Workshops visit multiple facets of cake design.

If you are planning a shower or a birthday party, think about adding the Designer Cupcakes course to your list of activities. Designer Cupcakes is a 3-hour workshop suitable for beginners that seems to be a lot of fun. Having a small group activity like that during the day adds something memorable to a shower or a birthday celebration. If you can spare more time, begin with the Introduction to Cake decorating course that can be taken over a 5 week period or as an intensive session.

The course can be the start of a passion. Private lessons are available. I guess that you can also book a time for a small group. By taking lessons with a few girl friends, you will be able to help each other if you ever want to decorate a cake at home for a party.

Although many take the Bonnie Gordon classes to open a business, several women take the course just for fun. It must be relaxing. I am sure that you must forgot the fast pace of life when you are decorating a cake.

Bonnie Gordon Cakes is not just a school; Bonnie Gordon Cakes also sells celebration cakes. She has the reputation to make breathtaking wedding cakes and spectacular anniversary cakes. She made an amazing cake for Louis Vuitton 150th celebration in Toronto.

I wish I was still living in Toronto right now. But hey, maybe someone will start a cake decorating school like this in Montreal. If you know about a cake decorating school that is open to the public in your city, make sure to pass it along here.

I will go at the café next door for a latte and one pain au chocolat to stop my craving.
