Please don't be so hard on me this time, it is actually my first time ever blogging!!! and what a better occasion to show one of my first cakes. OMG!!! It looks terrible!! but I must say my fondant work doesn't look that bad at all, but how I hate that edge!!! This terrrible picture was taken around 2009 after I took my first class with Wilton at my local Michael's. After those clases (even that I had a "not- so- nice" trainer) I was completely hooked!!
I am now welcoming myself to the online world. I must admit I have being avoided long time. But after opening my Facebook fan page https://www.facebook.com/pages/Viva-La-Cake/, and my Pinterest https://pinterest.com/jolyvivalacake/ and my Instagram http://instagram.com/imvivalacake/ and restart posting at Cake Central under my previous pseudonymous lanana and opening a new account at cakedecor.com; I mean seriously I should start blogging a little bit, it is actually what everybody does lately: stick to your fans in Facebook, share retouched pics on instagram (I love the 1977 effect), repinned every single silly, nice, cute, dumb, impossible or amazing idea on Pinterest, well posting a Blog was the very next thing for me.
Part of what I love to do is to teach; I used to be ESL teacher, French Teacher and always a Spanish teacher. Well, now I still love to teach, but everything sugar: CAKES, Cookies, Cupcakes etc. My ultimate dream will be teaching what I know about sugar craft. I still need to learn way too much, but since I already know the basic, definitely would love to pass the knowledge.
So this takes me to Second 2013 resolution (first is as usual: loose weight)
BECOME A SUGAR CRAFT TEACHER, that also can include become a Wilton instructor.
I have prepared some nice Tutorial which are now posted in my Facebook page and also in Cake Central
and of course I will post them here, along with my experiences trying new sugar art techniques or any cake that get stuck between my eyebrows and can't stop thinking about it until I give it a try and prove myself I can make it!!!
So stick around for some nice experiences making nice cakes, or cookies or cupcakes or any nice cute sugar trendy thing that start being viral and we all fall for it!!!
It is also good for me to know that after 3 years making cakes for friends and family, now I can see better results: this is like 99% sweat 1% creativity, here is my latest cake
SUGAR HUGS, JOLY!!!
