3rd Fondant Chocolate cake order in 3 weeks

             Wow, if only I started doing more decorative cakes a long time ago with fondant decor, butter cream, royal icing, etc!!! I didn't find the niche then as such I never delve deep into this area.


              What started off as a diversion, from my usual Chocolate cake for my daughter's birthday 3 weeks ago has got me thinking, real hard, into continuing in this direction & taking up a professional course!!! I learnt a butter icing course from a well known cake decorator a very, very long time ago but I didn't take it seriously then as I was working & with young kids in tow there was hardly any time to practise much cake decorating aside from practising my baking, which is my real passion then & now & looking after the family!!! 


             And now that I have ample time, I wonder whether I should delve into the 4 courses which are now on promotion.  I have always, always wanted to explore in this direction & now I wonder whether there would be a cooling off period for me.  Am afraid that, as this is quite a big undertaking, aside from its hefty costs, whether I would follow it through.  My daughter told me to go for it & she would pay for same but I am still hesitating and thinking whether I should OR just continue what I have been doing; teaching myself via You Tube various tutorial.  If I were to comment I think there are more advantages in going for the courses, which is over a period of 5 months as you can see the instructor doing same, listening to their tips & taking notes during the classes.  I feel I owe it to myself to follow my dream but still the thought persist that it is "quite late in the day to start same".  I told my girl this feeling that I don't want to waste her money and that, after the courses, I may not be able to do a lot of wedding cake as a business as haha, no longer young!!! And I was touched to the core when she told me to just go for the courses for the main thing was that she just wanted me to have fun & learn at the same time & that it didn't matter if I don't do wedding cakes, I could always decorate for birthdays, engagement cakes, etc.  Thank you my darling, both of you have done us proud!!!




                          Till my next post, xoxo, Ophelia.
