Rainy Days and Mondays

I think those two things that I don't really like, you're grounded because it's yucky outside and your start of the week is always hectic: emails to reply, things to do, and thinking of activities for the kids to do at home.  But this Monday was different!  I was too excited as it was the day to register to CakeLove 2012.  If you're wondering what it is, it's a cake conference.  Yes, CAKE conference.  There's consumer electronic one (CEDIA) that my husband usually attend, there's the COMIC-con that we would like to attend someday, and finally the cakers have their own CAKE conference.  I had to miss last year's conference, but this year I am going!  YAY!
The minute the registration opened, I think the site crashed for a few minutes, almost feel like you're trying to get a hot seat for say, a COLDPLAY concert.  I was almost in tears when I found the class that I wanted was full and I opted for a different class with the same instructor (the fabulous Jacqueline Butler from Petalsweet Cakes).  But thank God, I double checked again a couple after that and found out that the class space for the one that I am DYING to take is still available!  I managed to switch and got enrolled in the one that I wanted! Double YAY!
The conference coordinators worked tirelessly to make this happened and I really appreciate their hard works.  They patiently replied to the posts and emails within reasonable response time.  Kudos to them!
If you're cake fans and you like to watch Food Network and TLC, you'd be so excited to be able to see these fabulous line up of instructors, as many of them have been on the competitions on TV, like: Norm Davis and Zane Beg, Peggy Tucker, James Rosselle, to name a few.

While I am dreaming about this cake conference until October, I will leave you with the cake that I made over the weekend for my husband's colleague who celebrated her 30 years in business of interior designs.

Congratulations, Patricia!

  3. Hi Yvonne
    This cake that you made for my 30th business anniversary party was the hit of the party. It was so beautiful and it tasted just as good as it looked. It was so thoughtful of you and you are so very talented. Tina saw it at the party and as a result she wants you to do her wedding cake in May.
    Thanks again!!!!
