Madge the rose is absolutely beautiful. I think she is going to be one heck of a cake decorator thumbs_up.gif

She says she is going to be a cake decorator when she grows up, and she really is good already. Her first cake she bakes came out perfect, with no leveling or trimming needed, it was amazing. icon_smile.gif Can you tell her Nanna is proud lol?

It's so awesome when kids do great things!! You must be a good teacher too. My grandma bought me an aluminum gingerbread man pan when I was about 12 and that started it all for me. Been decorating ever since. Funny thing is the only thing my grandmother knew how to make was reservations icon_lol.gif

Thats such a cute story.....I hope she continues to learn...she is very good. and I am so happy to work with her. Thanks

Watch out Nanna! I see the "Cake" gleam in those big pretty eyes of your grand daughter. Looks like the cake bug has bitten her.........hehehe! If her beautiful roses are an indication of her skill, looks like you are going to have an apprentice on your hands. Must be in the genes! Happy baking to you both. icon_smile.gif

mamawrobin Posted 19 Jan 2010 , 3:42am

she is georgeous! looking forward to seeing her creations icon_smile.gif

madgeowens Posted 19 Jan 2010 , 3:46am

I know she will be better than me in a very short time. She is wonderful....makes me so happy. I am so lucky!

sugarcheryl Posted 19 Jan 2010 , 4:42am

Now that is awesome I can see why you would be proud. She has done a great job icon_smile.gif

madgeowens Posted 19 Jan 2010 , 5:11am

Thanks so much! She will be so thrilled, and be given real encouragement to continue when she reads these wonderful comments. Thanks for taking the time.

if she ever shows an interest in working with fondant...i highly recommend encouraging her to take any type of sculpting class. After my baby sister started watching me work with fondant, she started taking classes at the local youth community center and for her art class in middle school and high school...it helps ALOT! I am proud today to say she has quickly begun to surpass me in her skills

good luck to your little apprentice, she's showing true skills already!

kaseyrconnect Posted 19 Jan 2010 , 6:38am

Lots of talent there. She really did an awesome job on her roses. She must be a quick learner. It took me quite a while to come up with something that even resembled a rose.

madgeowens Posted 19 Jan 2010 , 6:40am

She has played a little with fondant....but I didn't want her to get frustrated, so I been holding off on it, but she called today and said she wanted to come after school and work with fondant haha, so we will see....thats a great idea....wish I could get a class with clay too

I know, I am self taught and it took me a long time to get it right....she amazes me. thumbs_up.gif

jleigh982 Posted 19 Jan 2010 , 7:11am

actually you may be able to take one with her, check community centers and colleges in your area...i took one not to long ago and it was very affordable, i think like 40 bucks. sometimes the high schools even have after school classes for adults...i think its called adult education classes most of them you can do with her as something for you to do together. good luck to you.

WOW nice job

JGMB Posted 19 Jan 2010 , 1:42pm

She's a cutie pie, and her roses are terrific! thumbs_up.gif

SS385Monte Posted 19 Jan 2010 , 4:56pm

Thats the way I felt about them a year ago lol

LateBloomer Posted 19 Jan 2010 , 5:47pm

Beautiful! Can I come for lessons!

Sassy74 Posted 19 Jan 2010 , 7:43pm

What a wonderful way to spend time with your g'daughter! These are days you'll both remember...my great-aunt Merle was the best baker I've ever known. She was so inspiring to me. She's been gone for many years, but I think about her EVERY time I turn my oven on! What she taught me and passed on to me is priceless. You're doing the same for your precious g'daughter!

madgeowens Posted 20 Jan 2010 , 2:25am

wow Sassy that was beautiful, thank you. Latebloomer sure, you have a long way to go though lol....thanks to everyone for such nice posts. She is a little sweetheart and I know just how blessed I am to have her, and I love that I get this time with her. icon_smile.gif
