Well, I am trying to recover from the exhaustion of graduating my Advanced Course in Cake Decorating. That completes 24 weeks of cake decorating! WOW! Our teacher was just plain HARD! And, she didn't hand out complements easily. So, I was pretty happy when she said that I did a really nice job on my cake. It was a 3 tiered cake, Yellow with lemon filling and it had White Pansies with violet colored faces, violets and tiny pansies as well. Everything on it was edible, including the top, which was made of royal icing sugar. There were tons of domes and filigree scrolls. Tons of work. Thank God it's over. Hey, if you are in La Jolla, CA on March 10th or 11th, I'll be entering a cake show, and going for some ribbons! Wish me luck! Missed you guys! P. S. I made Salmon Croquets, jasmine rice and apple sauce for dinner. This was a major improvement for my kids, as they were sick of forraging the fridge!
