What an honor it was to be asked by a local women’s group to host a buttercream basics class at their monthly luncheon! This was my first time teaching and the goal of the class was to learn simple piping techniques but mostly it was to have fun and enjoy outstanding fellowship. These ladies were very eager to get started and they each dove right in trying different borders and flowers. The room was filled with laughter and everyone had a great time. Prior to the class the ladies enjoyed a light luncheon followed by my lemon cake with raspberry filling and white chocolate ganache. The theme for the cake was spring, feminine and soft colors. I chose a blush pink accented with brighter pink peonies, a simple textured ruffle border and gold beads for a touch of dazzle. Perfect for a spring day in Florida!
