Hi.  Is anyone going?  Have you gone in the past?  I am thinking about going to take a class.  Are there a lot of vendors?  Thanks.

AI'd like to go, too. Last time I checked the classes weren't posted. Are they up now?

ATrying to think of a theme based on a book was a little I looked through my kids books and thought of doing a Light in the attic theme. I just started getting into hand painting cakes, so this make be an opportunity to do some some work with it. I have it done in my head... It's just a matter of following through. I may just wait it out a year, feel out the show as a spectator, and try next year. I'm going to give it a day or two to think more about it. Do you have a plan? Where are you from? I'm in Lacey.

AI can't find any info either. I know that there isn't a CT this year so I am wondering if NJ isn't having one this year.

I went a couple years ago and they had awesome classes, awesome vendors but a medium amount of cakes on show with lots of space left for others.  But the ones there rocked.  I had a blast and would definitely do it all over again.

I will be very interested in finding out where the location will be.  I lived in NJ for 25 years and what a great reason to go "home".

I did inquire on the website and they said they are scouting for a location and to stay tuned.  I guess it won't be late winter this year.  if I hear anything further I'll post.

I have been twice.  there are not too many vendors but more than a few free classes.  I took one class two years ago and it was great.


The vendors that are there are good and bring supplies to buy and no shipping.  Some show techniques and there is the competition too.  I love it and would recommend if you are near by.  


They are usually a little late getting info out on classes but they get some really good instructors.
