Neave,

Fantastic!  Kiss  I look forward to it, hopefully sooner than later.  I was originally planning on having classes some time ago, but then we got into the middle of a move, and after that we never were set up again for the classes.  Can't wait to get back to it!  Kiss  I can tell you'll be a good crocheter after seeing your beautiful cakes.  Kiss

Neave,

Great...I have a feeling you'll be a good student, too!  Kiss

Wow, so your parents owned a cafe?  I guess that would be a good way to learn to cook.  Smile  So where did your cake decorating genius come from?

I don't blame you for stopping the customer orders.  I imagine it's extremely stressful.  Making a certain kind of cake, providing it on time for an event...not easy!  And I'm guessing sometimes customers would nag you about this and that.  Frown

Neave,

I'm not surprised...it's soooooooo hard to work with customers...they want a gazillion different things, change their minds about every hour...blurgh!

Better to make cakes for you and your own now.  Kiss  LOL, though family can be demanding, as well!

Wow, your grandmother taught you all of that?  Kiss  Well, apparently she handed the gift down to you...lovely!  Kiss

Nobody in my family would know what to do to decorate a cake.  When I was a kid, I checked a cake book out of the library and my friend came over to help make it.  I had no idea what I was doing.  It turned out okay, but by the time we got around to eating it, it had sat out too long and was on the stale side.  Cry  Soooooo disappointing!

Neave,

It's so sweet that it's a generational thing, too...keeping that art alive!  Kiss  It's sad when art doesn't get handed down to younger generations.  What a wonderful gift for your nana to have handed to you!  Kiss

Neave,

That's so sad!  Cry  I'm sorry you didn't have a lot of time with him.

It's so beautiful that you're teaching your nieces and nephews about pastries!  Kiss  It will always give them a marketable skill where they can make money if need be.  Kiss
