Hope everyone had a fun weekend! After a busy week at the shop, I escaped Saturday morning. I got a chance to go to cake show this past weekend and watch some demonstration from Celebrity Chefs! Mike McCarey, Nicholas Lodge, John Kraus, Katy Scott, Geraldine Randlesome, and Lauren Kitchens. Mike McCarey and Lauren Kitchen have been in several cake challange on Food TV. They were all so talented and share some good tips on how to decorate structure cakes, what to use, what not to use, what product, what's the new trend... and etc. It reminds me when I was in culinary school 7 years ago! Time sure flew away! Here are few shot from the event:
