I'm Going To Do It!

I wrote a post telling you that I was thinking about taking a cake decorating class a few weeks ago and I have decided to do it! My classes start on Thursday night and will last for 4 weeks. I will take a total of (4) 2 hour classes for course 1. I'll only be learning the basics right now. The next course that I take will be teaching me more advanced skills.

This really is the first thing that I've done for me since before I had Evan. I am so excited for classes to start. I bought the caddy that is full of 101 pieces so that I have pretty much everything that I'll need to get started. My brother's birthday is Sept 24th and my goal is to decorate a cake for him that looks better than these.

I will be posting about each of my 4 classes and promise to include pictures even if my cakes look horrible!

Pin It!

Good for you. I've always wanted to take classes but never seem to make the time for it. My Mother-in-law has given me all her supplies, so I definetly need to put them to good use.

Have fun! I took a class. I ate the frosting roses that didn't look the best. Bad idea. You can put your mistakes back in the frosting bag.

Mom of Three said...

Stopping by from SITS. Your red velvet cake looked yummy, even if it didn't have showcase looks. I am sure your brother is going to have a wonderful cake for his birthday. Good luck!

Tater Tot Mom said...

I have been meaning to do just that for the longest time! I'm sure it will be a great time!

Stopping in from SITS.

Kimmy C said...

I would love to take a cake decorating class... I too have dabbled in making cakes (come take3 a peak at mine! 733blog.blogspot.com). Howdini.com has been very helpful. I can't wait to see some of your skills that you've learned!

Laura said...

I've always wanted to take a cake decorating class, but never found the time.

Julie @ Little One-of-a-Kind Design said...

Woo hoo! Hooray for continued learning!

Fruitful Vine2 said...

Have fun! It's good that you're doing something for you.

I'm Anitra! said...

Visiting from SITS. Hope you have fun with this!

Mrsbear said...

Sounds like a fun endeavor. Albeit a bit of diet sabotage. Yum.

The818 said...

Happy SITS day!

Tonya said...

That sounds like so much fun! I would love to take a cake decorating class!

Christina said...

There's nothing better than being able to create a beautifully decorated cake for the people you love. So exciting! And always good to find a new hobby.

Are they focusing on just frosting, or other things like marzipan, etc.?

missy said...

sounds fun!!!!!
all moms need a little down time!!!!!!
ENJOY!!!!!

Amanda @ Serenity Now said...

How fun!!! It's good for us moms to do something for ourselves every now and then. :)

withoutadornment said...

That is so much fun! I did all four Wilton courses and I had a blast! Now I want to go and look through your blog for all your pictures.

Happy SITS day!

Pam said...

Good for you! It's important to do something for yourself and nurture your interests - especially now that you have two small children at home. Enjoy yourself.

Alexandria said...

I took a cake decorating class once when I was teenager and could eat all the cake I wanted without gaining an ounce! I loved it!

Have fun!!!

Bill and Lorie Shewbridge said...

Sounds like a wonderful treat for you. I can't wait to see the pictures. I've always wanted to do that also as I LOVE to bake... since I physically cannot do it, I will do it vicariously through you.
Have a wonderful time.

Keri said...

I want to do this too, but I don't have the steady hand or patients. I'll leave it to the artists, like you. Thanks for sharing, Keri

Joy said...

Have fun with it!

And congrats again on your SITS feature day!

Vickie said...

Good luck! My sister does this and she seems to enjoy it.

Helene said...

I'll be anxious to hear how your first class goes! Are you taking the Wilton class at Joann's? That's the one I want to take but I'm just waiting for it to start on a day that doesn't conflict with my hubby's soccer schedule.

It totally figures, right? Finally, I found something I really enjoy that I can do on my own time but it conflicts with HIS schedule. I'm starting to wonder if I'll ever get to do anything just for myself!

Can't wait to see your first masterpiece!

Sarah@HomeschoolinRealLife said...

One day I'll do a class too. Here are my totally non-educated attempts

If you can do the stars on a cookie cake (which i see that you can) then you've already got a great start. I look forward to the photos!

Fun!

I loved loved my cake decorating class. It was so fun!! Can't wait to see your cakes!

Meg said...

I hope you enjoy your classes! I never have the patience for that kind of stuff.

Lady Mama said...

Good for you for doing something for yourself! Sounds like fun.

tickledpinktwice said...

Yeah for doing something for yourself. Us mommies need to do that more often. My group of friends is doing an "old ladies night out" and taking a cake decorating class. Cant wait to see yours.

Rebecca said...

Cake decorating - so fun!!!

Can't wait to see pictures of your first cakes :)!

Holly Noelle @ Domestic Dork said...

This sounds so fun! I <3 cakes!!! I've thought about taking the Wilton classes before...but I really don't need an excuse to make and eat more cake! lol

Krissy @ B.Inspired, Mama! said...

That's awesome! I hope it's going well. That football cake wasn't so bad! I inherited a cake decorating set from my grandmother, and I dabble with it some, but would LOVE to take a formal class and learn more.

barefacedapproach said...

Wow, that's awesome. I'm not that brave. I love to bake but I don't know that I am cut out to make cakes quite like that. Hope the classes are going really well.

Kristin said...

I think that's great. It's so important for mommies to have me time. Happy SITS day!

Halle@HouseCapated said...

I have always wanted to take a cake decorating class. I would love to see pics...hope you post some!!

Katie said...

Oooh so exciting! Are you doing it at a craft store? I'd love to hear about your experience!

Karen, author of "My Funny Dad, Harry" said...

Sounds like fun. I'm sure you'll enjoy the class very much and your cakes will look GREAT! Good for you on doing this and developing your skills.

Happy SITS Day!

Helen McGinn said...

I bake a lot and have considered cake decoration for a long time! You've inspired me. x

Mama Mair said...

Great idea mom!
Besides, after "half" natural child birth - a new class is a piece of cake!
Happy SITS day!

Eclipsed said...

I think that's a great idea. I always love pretty cakes.

Happy SITS day!

Amy said...

How fun for you! I hope you get the cake decorated for the birthday.

Two Normal Moms said...

Happy SITS day!
Have fun with the cakes - you'll love it! I took the first two in a three class series and did a few for friends and family. Hopefully you'll have better willpower than me to stay out of the frosting!

Are You There Mom? said...

Totally tell us how this goes cause I've always wanted to do it!

The girl with the flour in her hair said...

Via SITS...

I took these classes and they were so much fun! I don't know if I enjoyed the class itself so much, or the time away from the house...;) Have fun with it!

Days of Whine & Noses said...

I have been wanting to take those classes for YEARS! Seems like there is never any time...

Stopping by from SITS

Missy said...

How fun! I have always wanted to do that too.

Happy SITS day!

Michelle said...

Dee, I read your post when you said you want to. So glad you signed up.

I just signed up for my first ever sewing class and it starts next week. I can't wait to learn to sew.

Yeah!

firststepforward said...

Ahh! This is SO exciting. I plan on taking a cake decorating class sometime in the future!

Hope they are going well! :)

Midday Escapades said...

Good for you! I can't wait to see the final product. I bet it's going to be fabulous.

Single Mama NYC said...

I'd love to take a cake decorating class. The problem with that is that I would eat all the cakes myself...

Unknown Mami said...

It's wonderful that you are doing something for you. I hope this reminds you to do for yourself more often.

Christine @UnstructuredBliss said...

Congratulations! I've always wanted to do that but haven't yet found the time!

Happy Sits Day!

Little Miss Baker said...

You will have to stop by my site and see what cake decorating did for me :) Happy SITS Day! I am a tad late but I am here!!

Cheryl said...

That sounds great! The pics of your cakes still look better then mine. Maybe I should think about classes!! :)

Crystalin Dunn said...

Wow! It takes guts to try something new--way to go!

a H.I.T. said...

What fun! I've always wanted to take a cake decorating class too :)

The Mom @ Babes in Hairland said...

I'm embarrassed that I'm so late getting over here from SITS. My husband has been out of town for 2 weeks and everything in my life turned chaotic. I've always wanted to take a decorating class like that because everything I've always done has just been from trial and error. I love "creating" a cake & having my girls be so excited about it. Good luck w/your class! Oh, and btw, I've got a giveaway over on my blog if you are interested! Hope your day in the SITS spotlight was great!
