My brother just retired from the Air Force and they are moving back here. They've lived quite far away the last 8 years so we haven't gotten to see each other alot during that time. My 15 year old niece loves the cakes I've posted on my facebook and wondered if I might make one for her. icon_rolleyes.gif Hmmm....ABSOLUTELY!!! thumbs_up.gif

But, what excites me even more is that she would like to know how to do some of it! icon_biggrin.gif I'm really looking forward to spending some quality time baking and decorating with her. She is quite artsy and creative so we should have a blast!

That's great! It's nice to be able to take someone young and impressionable under your wing like that, and hope that they could develope the same passion for cakes that you do.

I often fantasize about my own daughter eventually having an interest in cakes, and me wanting to teach her everything I know. icon_razz.gif

It's also a great way to develop a relationship with her, a shared passion. It will be gread when she gets to that stage when sho won't talk to her parents (everyone has that for some period of time), at least she will have you.

How cool! I'm excited for you! I love teaching and sharing what I know with kids, even more rewarding when it's in the family!

I understand your excitement. When my dauther come to visit, she helped me make a cake. She was really good at it. She would love to move closer and help do cakes but doesn't look like that is going to happen.

My granddaughter wanted to help me make her birthday cake. It was so much fun.

Aww...it will be a lot of fun for you to teach her how to decorate cakes! Yeah! And it's nice that your brother's family will be near you!

I have the pleasure of sharing my passion with my 8 year old daughter. She wants me to teach her everything I know about cake decorating. I am new to the game myself. I know this journey is going to be fun!

My kids love learning tricks from me, though I don't know much. They keep reminding me that when they get older, they will know more than I do because they started earlier. icon_biggrin.gif
