Summer Buzzing

We have been buzzing around preparing for quite a few exciting events.
Our new classroom is almost done and I cannot wait for all the dust to get wiped off and start teaching in there:)
Some of you may have received some of our latest news through our newsletters.
I have launched my new classes for the fall. My first class is the Designer Cheetah Bag cake. This is going to be great class.
I have taken it to another level and you will all have an opportunity to learn how to put some realistic jaw dropping details. Seriously your fans will not believe that it is all edible.
