Sooooo.. I’m leaving next week.
I’m leaving on a jet plane, and flyin’ on over to Birmingham, England to attend a big cake show, Cake International. I’ll be giving some demonstrations while I’m there, meeting a ton of my online cake artist friends for the first time, and then gettin’ all fancy SCHMANCY, dressing up for the black tie, Cake Masters Awards show that Saturday night… at which there will be good eatin’, entertainment, dancing, and hopefully an ample amount of belly laughing.
And then I’m flying from there over to Dublin, Ireland to teach a few classes … and to hang out with my Irish friends of whom I laughed my BEHIND off with last June.
Ask me if I’ve got everything all ready and set to go. Go ahead… ask me!
Ok nevermind, don’t ask me. ‘Cause I don’t. I’m kindo’ dangerously close to resembling headless poultry, at the moment, running around frantically in the dirt.
It’s not pretty.
So… this gonna be a QUICK post, this week. Like, a SUPAH speed blog post. Gonna give you the facts, and then slip out all Speedy Gonzales-like. Might not even use complete sentences. (‘Case you hadn’t already noticed.)
My cousin got married this summer.
I made him a wedding cake.
I finished the cake in a rustic, watercolor buttercream technique.
I made some wildflowerish flowers out of homemade modeling chocolate and stuck them on with extra buttercream.
And then went to the par-TAY, watched my cousin pledge his love to his beautiful bride…
and proceeded to dance the night away with the rest o’ my cousins and family.
To say it was “fun” would be a GROSS understatement.
(And I even got to wear heels.)
Talk to ya next week from the OTH-AH side o’ the pond! Xx
Love, Speedy 😉
