Wanna get creative?
Have you heard of Craftsy? I am sure many of you have, but for those of you who haven't, let me tell you a little more. Craftsy is a fabulous website that offers online classes on many different hobbies, one of which, of course, is Cake Decorating! Each class can be viewed anytime, anywhere, through your own account, and you even get to print out the notes and materials on the classes that you've enrolled in. Some of the classes are free too (yes FREE!), like the Modern Buttercream class (see link on right side of bar). All you need to do is sign up and become a Craftsy member (and that's free too!).
If you've never been on Craftsy before, it is well worth the look. I have learnt how to design a fabulously lifelike alligator handbag cake from the famous Elisa Strauss of Confetti Cakes, as well as make beautiful flowers from the amazing Nicholas Lodge. Even Sharon Wee and Zoe Clark have lessons online too. One of Sharon's classes shows you how to make an amazing castle cake and Zoe Clark has gorgeous lace cakes all figured out. Lindy Smith has just put up a new class on how to create a beautiful bird cage, which seems to be a very popular design now. Are you excited yet?! I am! You can view some of these classes here:
