Hi Friends and Neighbors!

Our amazing intern Jessica attended a cake decorating class hosted by IE Cupcake Fair sponsor California Cake Decorations & Supply Co. in Redlands.  Not only does California Cake provide baking and decoration supplies of all kinds, they also provide fantastic decorating and baking classes.  Here’s a glimpse at Jessica’s experience with fun pictures of her creations.


My friend and I recently had the chance to experience a fondant class at our California Cake Decorations & Supply Co. in Redlands!  That’s right, this place is not only the one shop stop for all things caking, it’s the place to go if you want to learn to bake and decorate a cake for any occassion. As a person who has always loved watching Ace of Cakes, Cake Boss, Cupcake Wars and every other show a wannabe cake decorator could possibly love, being in this class made me feel like I may actually have a chance to achieve that crazy dream of making a professional cake.

When we first walked in, we were greeted by Traci, the owner, and her cute cake and cupcake decorations! We were awestruck at the variety of baking tools and necessities the store had. The walls are lined with so many different things that we spent a good ten minutes going through everything and got so excited coming up with new ideas of they types of projects we would be able to accomplish. But first, we had to conquer this fondant class.



Patty was a great instructor that took the time to work with each individual student to make sure that they understood everything she was saying. As novices, we all bombarded her with a million questions on the difficult art of rolling out fondant and she took it like a champ. The room was not very large, which gave us a very good view of what Patty was doing at her instructor’s table and a more one-on-one experience. Every time a fondant strip crumbled, she gave us some great tips which eventually led to us creating some pretty decent looking cakes!

After a couple (or maybe more) tries to cover our dummy cake with a piece of fondant, we were finally able to make our “cake” look pretty good! I honestly don’t think we could have gotten that fondant on the cake in once piece without the patience and help of Patty and the encouragement from Traci, who would stop in every once in a while to give us some encouragement. In the end, we were able to produce a great looking cake, but nothing like the ones created by our classmates! Take a look at these awesome fondant covered creations!
