Craftsy is having another amazing sale where every single class is on sale for $19.99 or less!  YAY!!

While this sale includes all Craftsy classes, of course I’m going to focus on the Cake Decorating and cooking classes!

Don’t know where to start?  Hare a few of my favorites:

Clean & Simple Cake Design

 

Clean & Simple Cake Design by Jessica Harris.  This is an all-time favorite.  This class is packed with information for beginners and seasoned cake decorators alike.  I’m convinced everybody can learn something from this class!

Modeling Chocolate Magic Lauren Kitchens

 

I was introduced to modeling chocolate in the Clean & Simple Cake Design class but this is the class that finally convinced me to start using it!!   I absolutely adored the Modeling Chocolate Magic Class.

Mini-Cakes Many Occasions

I cannot explain why I loved this class as much as I did, but it’s absolutely a favorite that I’ve gone back and watched parts of it again and again!  Maybe it’s because the cakes are so tiny… and perfect!?  Aren’t we all drawn to and fascinated by tiny things?

Anywho – I highly recommend Mini Cakes, Many Occasions.  It’s fabulous and Rachel Teufel might be my most favorite Craftsy instructor (although I love so many of them!).  You can read more about my experience with this class here.

So, you can scroll though and read all of my Craftsy posts by clicking here… I review several that I’ve taken and go over the basics of Craftsy too!  If you have questions, leave me a comment!

In the meantime, treat yourself to a new class for Christmas… or buy a gift card and share the Craftsy love with another cake decorator eager to learn – I promise they’ll thank you!! <3

If you’re ready to take a class, hurry and grab it now while they’re on sale!   But if you’re still not sure, please sign up for a free class and get a feel for Craftsy!  I’m sure you won’t be disappointed! 

P.S.  If you’re not already subscribed to my blog, would you?  You can sign up here for my free email updates and then you’ll never miss a cake or dessert or deal or any other quirky thing I choose to post here!  :)

How to Organize Ribbons RoseAtwater.com

Do you ever feel like being a cake decorator means you must (by default) be a “Jack of All Trades”?   It’s true!!  You have to also be a photographer, accountant,  crafter, sculpter, customer service representative, math whiz, scientist… and the list goes on and on!

Anyway, I’ve off track here.  What got me to thinking about it is the fact that I’m not at all “crafty” so I would’ve never foreseen myself writing a blog post about How to Organize Ribbons.  But here I am.

Cakes with Ribbons

So, do you decorate your cake boards with ribbons – like those above?  It’s something I started doing several months ago and the more rolls of ribbon I collected, the more of a mess I seemed to have!  It’s the only thing I do with ribbons… I can’t tie a bow to save my life and I certainly don’t sew or make pillow case dresses or anything else ribbon-related.

Anyway, after my ribbons got out of control for the thousandth time, I was ready to pull my hair out.  That is… until I was browsing Pinterest one day and I saw my solution!    It only took several weeks for me to implement it, but I finally organized my ribbons and I shared pictures and details over at RoseAtwater.  Go see How to Organize Ribbons here.
