I had the priveledge (sp?) of taking a cake deco class at Confetti Cakes with Elisa Strauss this weekend. All I can say is she is amazing! Well I knew that part already but to see her cakes in person icon_eek.gif WOW. We had a chance to make a mini monster head like the one on the cover of her book. She was so sweet and let you ask questions the whole time. While we were there we saw a huge cake going out to "a celebrity" and I just saw the cake this morning on the US Magazine website icon_biggrin.gif What a hoot, she wouldn't say who it was for and rightfully so but to see it in person then in a magazine the next day, I am flying high icon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gif

I just have to figure out how to post the pic right in the forum instead of in my album. Any ideas? icon_redface.gif I should know by now.

To attach pic:

When you post your reply there is an option to add an attachment (you'll see a tab that say "add an attachment under where you type your reply to the post). then you have can click on the browse button and select the pic that you have loaded onto your computer (wherever you have saved it to). Then click on add attachment and submit your post as usual.


You'll also want to make sure the pic you post is has a .jpg extension. Sometimes there are issues with size so if it tells you it's to big you will need to reduce the size of the pic.

HTH. If you need anymore help let me know! icon_smile.gif

I am soooo jealous of you girls, what I would give to take a class, heck, any class. I do have a signed copy of Elisa Strauss last book (Tuggy got it for me) and it's one of my favourite. Have fun at the class Antonia

She is a sweetheart! I actually emailed her to ask a question and actually got a response!! I was impressed with that, even though, I am sure it was her assistant, they at least took the time to respond. Tried that with Colette Peters and didn't get any response or acknowlegement of email..

I love her books - I have both of them. My son is wanting the monster on the cover for his Pre School moving up to Kindergarten Party. I've just started baking, so I'll be sure to ask LOTS of questions!

That is awsome, I saw her at the Austin Cake show, I was unable to take her class but she seemed real nice.
Can you post a picture of the cake you saw, I went on the website and could not find it. I was just wondering what It looked like.

I am sorry guys, I keep trying to post pictures but it is not letting me. A lot of the pics I have are the cakes she had going out that day which were covered in plastic wrap but you can still get the idea icon_biggrin.gif
