I'm going to my first DOS next weekend, and was wondering what to expect.
Anything I should do or not do?

You should expect lots of fun and terrific learning experiences. Don't know how the club you visit will organize their meeting, but there is usually a short business meeting during the day sometime. There will probably be several talented people demonstrating different techniques, lots of wonderful members and guests with amazing "brag books" to look at, and anywhere from munchies to stuff-yourself-silly quantities of food. Ours sometimes has vendors selling goodies and always has either a table of raffle goodies or silent auction items along with door prizes. Well worth every minute!

Thanks ibmoser for the info.
Gahh, I'm such a newbie!

DOS-Day of Sharing

I know they have several different demonstrators, one of them being Sharon Zambito!! I cannot wait!!

Others are Dena Bryngleson, Kim Wilson, Carolyn Mangold, and Jacque Benson.

Should be fun, I just didn't know what else there is going on.

you will see one demo at a time. have time to shop if there are vendors. usually lunch and meet other decorators. often they have raffles for prizes too.

FUN!

That's what I wanted to know, if we'd be able to see all the demos or have to pick which ones we wanted to see.

Why the heck are you blushing silly lady?

Well, for some of the larger DIS you do have to pick. But for the smaller ones, like Pearland, you get to see them all. I am baking and freezing my cakes now for Pearland. Are you taking my classes too? If not, I gunna kick yo butt! icon_smile.gif


PS. Dena is a cake idol of mine and I cannot wait to see her 3D gator. WOOHOO!

Aww man, I would loooove to be there Monday or Tuesday, but I can't because of other obligations.

But I'll be there Sunday, with a big stupid look on my face, and when I see you, I'll try not to squeal!!

How do you get invited to a DOS. is this something for shop owners or professional cake decorators. Just curious cause it sounds like lots of fun.

Please explain further what a Day of Sharing is. It sounds like fun, but I still don't know what and where it is. Is there some website that explains it?
Thanks.

Go to Ices.org - that is the main website. Each area has their own Day Of Sharing (DOS) We just had ours in Columbus this weekend.

You will meet a lot of wonderful cake friends there! You learn a lot and buy a lot and just have a great time with folks who all love decorating.

I did my first "demo" today and was nervous as ever, I know I made some mistakes, but it turned out fine.

We have them twice a year here - in April and Oct. I really look forward to them!
