Winner of the Lionel Santa Fe train set

One November afternoon, my husband took my kids and I to an annual open house to see a large collection of train sets in our area. It was my first time to see one and it’s their second time to visit this annual show. It was so kind of them to run the show for FREE to the public.

Wilton Cake decorating Course 3 – 4th day Update

I have fond memories when I took the course 3 classes in Wilton cake decorating. I love that the flowers I made with gumpaste really turned out what I want them to be. For some reason, it’s easy to manipulate gum paste than butter cream. I learned that it really helps that you will be able to make many flowers after you take each day of the class.


Here’s the final cake I made in the course 3 class.
