Mercedes class and More Part 2

Mercedes and Alex are back home in Orlando and we miss them dearly. We had an amazing 2 weeks with them and lots of fab memories. Our students díd fantastic work in all of the classes. Here are some highlights from Mercedes' Handbag & Shoe & Topsy Turvy , Gumpaste Flower and Wedding Cake Class.

Since we're on the topic of shoes, I couldn't wait another day to show you these delectably adorable eensy weensy stilettos we made for a very special celebration.

We made each stiletto with very light pink gumpaste and dusted it with pink pearl dust.

Back to Mercedes classes. The day after her Handbag and Shoe class, we had a whimsical time learning how to stack and decorate Topsy Turvy Cakes.


Last Thursday and Friday was her 2 day Gumpaste Flower class. The students learned a beautiful assortment of Gumpaste flowers. Calla Lillies, Orchid, Giant Rose and more.

We capped off Mercedes' week with her Wedding Cakes Class.

Some of you may have also seen us at the Satin Ice booth at the Hofex convention last week. I did some demos at the booth. It was really great meeting all of you there.

Here I am with Kevin O'reilly the founder of Satin Ice

I want to say a special Thank you to Mercedes,Alex Strawchsky and all the students for another memorable time at Deelite. A special thanks to all the students who travelled from India, Australia,Thailand,Brazil & USA.

We look forward to having Mercedes & Alex Back again:)
