The excitement is starting to sink in. Tomorrow I am going to a cake decorating demonstration featuring Elisa Strauss from Confetti Cakes. It is 2 hours long and she is going to show how to make a present cake with the top open and tissue paper icon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gif Do you think i will be allowed to take pictures of her? Would she sign my book icon_smile.gif I am so excited it just sank in tonight thumbs_up.gif

AAHHHH!!! Have Fun! I'm going to her shop for a class in April I think, maybe March. She's doing the monster critter from her kids book. she's also doing a class on the box but I thought the critter was cuter and who can afford more than one of her classes ?!? icon_cry.gif

Sooooooo jealous! Have a great time. If it were only one day later - sigh. Am coming to NYC for a class this weekend for work. I just took this up as a hobby this summer and imagine my surprise when my roommate casually mentioned that she knew a cake woman from NY who had been on the Food Network. Turns out she is very good friends with Elisa's husband and spent some time with them this summer in Europe! I could have died!

p.s. I would definitely bring your book for her to sign.

She will also be at That Takes the Cake in Austin Feb 28, 29. I'm not entering the competition, but I will be there for the show and I'm signed up for Nicholas Lodge's class the following Monday and Tuesday. I am pumped!!

i've taken a class with her before.
we did a mini version of her sushi cake.
it was so much fun.
she is so nice and helpful - she gave alot of tips which applied to the cake we were making but also things we could apply to all cakes in general.
