Earlene Moore Classes
Earlene Moore

Earlene Moore is an amazing cake decorator from Lubbock, TX. Her cake decorating career began at a very young age when her mother would allow her to make a huge mess in the kitchen. There were no classes available at that time, so, trial and error were Earlene's teachers. Earlene is now the teacher - she is a published author/contributor, she has written several cake decorating articles, and has had numerous cake picures published.

Earlene has won many ribbons, plaques and awards at cake shows - but the ribbons and awards are not what she feels is important. The important thing about cake shows and "Days of Sharing" is the people you meet (for networking) and the information you learn as well as share. Earlene is now phasing out her very successful custom cake business to allow more time for teaching.

Earlene's class - All Day Buttercream on February 25th will focus on buttercream side designs and Earlene's specialized buttercream techniques.

Black Cocoa Cookie Recipe
black cocoa cookies

This is my new favorite cookie! Watch out though - because they are addictive. I have seen black cocoa cookies highlighted in several cookie magazines this season - they are so striking because they really are black - not from food color, but from the cocoa. I have worked on this recipe - it is an easy recipe to work with - just be careful with the black cocoa - it has a tendency to go everywhere. This is a good cut-out cookie because it doesn't spread when it is baked. The black cocoa makes all of the difference - in both looks and taste. It will make a very black cookie and the cookie is very, very chocolaty - like a soft Oreo cookie. We are now carrying black cocoa here in the store. The black cocoa made some great ghosts and hand modeled spiders for Halloween and now I can't wait to make some fancy snowflakes.

Holidays - the time of year for gift giving. What better gift than a sweet, homemade gift? Here are some candy recipes - tried and true and easy to make. Candies like these make great gifts for teachers, neighbors, friends, anyone. Now that the weather has cooled off a little bit - all of the chocolates and crunches are in stock. We also have all kinds of bags, boxes and packaging to make the presentation just as nice as the goodies inside!

Cinnamon Roll Recipe
cinnamon rolls

Mmmm... there is nothing like the smell of cinnamon rolls baking. This is an easy recipe to make and then bake the next morning. Imagine how delighted your overnight holiday guests will be when you treat them to homemade cinnamon rolls! Randy just loves when I make cinnamon rolls - he has been craving them now that I put them in this newsletter. I will have to make some soon...

bronwen Airbrush Class with Bronwen Weber
airbrushed fish cake

We are excited to have Bronwen Weber coming back to teach an airbrush class! Sunday, January 20th Bronwen will be sharing her signature airbrush techniques and after this class you will start airbrushing everything! In class you will practice airbrush basics, color mixing and control. You will learn how to turn plain white pre-made gumpaste flowers into beautiful, colorful flowers. You will also carve, sculpt and cover a small shaped cake in white fondant that you will then airbrush to bring it to life!

There are 2 options for this class - class only or class with an airbrush set. If you don't have an airbrush yet, this is a wonderful opportunity to get a great airbrush set at a great price. Bronwen loves this new airbrush!

Don't miss this fun full-day class chock-full of techniques that you will use all the time!

If you've been really good this year, maybe Santa will bring you a new airbrush and this great class!
