Hold On! Can you believe that it is almost time for the kids to go back to school? Where has the summer gone? We had the opportunity to go to some fun cake related events this summer. I taught a zebra print fondant purse class in Louisianna for their Day of Sharing and we went to the ICES Convention in Orlando and then the Capital Confectioners just hosted a great Day of Sharing. All of these events were great opportunities to connect with long-time cake friends and make new ones!

We have been busy at the store putting out Halloween items - yes, Halloween! We have been getting in some new items that we saw in the vendor area at ICES and we have gotten some fun new cookie cutters (my favorites).

We are working on the details for the 5th Annual That Takes the Cake, Capital Confectioners Cake and Sugar Art Show and Competition. Mark your calendar for February 28 and March 1, 2009. See below for some of the preliminary details...

We are very excited to announce a series of classes taught by Susie Rasmussen. You may have seen her demonstration at the Day of Sharing last week. Well, she is going to teach an airbrush class and several buttercream piping classes here at the store. She is a fun and amazing instructor with a wealth of information and decorating ideas and tips that she readily shares during her classes. Look below for details. Be sure to sign-up for these classes soon - I am sure that they will fill quickly!

I have attached a recipe sheet for Ice Cream Sandwiches. What is better on a hot day - and we have had a few of those hot days. The sheet includes a recipe to make your own ice cream, a great recipe for chocolate chip cookies and instructions to put it all together. There is even a variation idea to make chocolate peppermint ice cream sandwiches. Enjoy!

Our new class schedule is listed here and online. We have some fun new classes coming up including an icing class to compliment the baking class, a pie class, another wedding cake class, seasonal cookie classes and more!

I know it won't happen overnight - but with the start of school - that means cooler weather can't be too far away! Enjoy the end of the summer. We look forward to seeing you in the store sometime soon. We will be closed Monday September 1st for Labor Day. I have included a coupon that you can use when you come into the store!

Ice Cream Sandwiches

Ice cream and chocolate chip cookies! A hot summer day treat! I have included a recipe for homemade ice cream - I use vanilla bean paste in my ice cream - it gives such a great flavor and I love the specks of vanilla. There is also a recipe for chococolate chip cookies - try this recipe even if you're not making the ice cream sandwiches - it is a really good cookie recipe. I also include an idea for a chocolate cookie peppermint sandwich and even a way to make ice cream sandwiches without even having to turn on your oven! I hope you enjoy this cool summertime treat!
