The Flour Power Tour 2012

Part 2 of Looking back at 2011 is still in the meantime here is a look at my personal teaching & travel line up for 2012!

The first leg of travel will be to Denver Colorado where I will be judging & demonstrating at the Sweet Times in the Rockies cake show. The show takes place February 11th & 12th at the Colorado Garden and Home Show.

Next stop is the That Takes The Cake Show in Austin Texas. The show takes place February 25th & 26th and consists of a sugar art show, live demonstrations, vendors, mini classes and celebrity classes! I'll be teaching Eat Your Art Out - how to make fun faux foods as well as making a silicone mould.
