My mom always tried to teach me how to bake, sew, and cook. Now I'm finally putting all those skills to use and learning some new ones along the way :) This blog is meant to document my adventures in the arts of homemaking.
The first thing I did when I got to the Oregon Coast on that Friday was take a Fondant 101 class from Michelle Bommarito (linked in a previous post).
Though I have worked with fondant before and even taken a Wilton class on it, I figured I would learn something and DID I EVER!!! I learned about the different types of fondant, tricks of the trade, how to kneed it correctly and how fast it dries! I sat next to a girl named Holly who liked taking pictures almost as much as I did so that was a plus. This class was more "demonstration" than hads on, but we did get some time to play around. She showed us so many tools, tricks, patterns, colors, and I was soaking it all in. I did take some notes but am not sure where I have since put them so hopefully it will come back to me.
My work station. Yes, I sat right up front :-)
She's super sweet AND super sassy :-)
The rest of the class watching.
Covering. She was amazing at this part!!
After the class.
I do have another story with Michelle...but that is for a different day. Bakerella was next :)
