April Meeting

Hi, Ladies (and, just in case, Gentlemen)!

Our monthly meeting is just 2 days away!
As always, we will be getting together to talk, share, and snack on something yummy! I will also have pictures of all the beautiful cakes and other creations from the Ocala Cake Competition, including the two winners from our Guild!

In case you missed the last post, Orlando is having their annual Festival of Chocolate this weekend! Lots of fun things to see and eat there, including 3 competitions, classes, and a chocolate fashion show!

There is a new website out there, featuring fully interactive online classes for artists of all genres, from cake decorating to sewing to painting. Their newest class will be instructed by "Last Cake Standing" winner, Richard Ruskell. And right now, they're offering it for 50% off! You can find out all about the class and sign up here. Plus you can check out all the other cake classes as well!

Hopefully we'll see you on Thursday!
Until then, have a baking good time!
