I highly approve and recommend the Wilton Bake Even Strips. I used them on a sheet cake the other day and today on a 10" round. My cake is beautiful. Completely level, even color, perfectly baked.

I wanted to share a picture of my two students for the June Kakes for Kids class. Antasia (left) and Alexis(right)were very good students, fast learners, and awesome cake decorators. We sure had a lot of fun on Saturday and they made some beautiful cakes. :)

Cake Boss

I have recently started watching TLC's new show Cake Boss. I really like this guys cakes. They are pretty and look like they taste great. It is different than Ace of Cakes, more practical? I don't know. There are also lots of tips on different techniques such as using a clothing steamer to "steam" a fondant cake. The result is a shiny cake. Set your DVR and check out for more info.

Can you guess the cover?

The 2010 Wilton Yearbook is due out next week. Everyday, Wilton is unveiling a small section of the new cover picture. Check out this link to make your guesses.
